Where We Come from (Hardcover)
We all come from many places and our stories have many differences, but there are also so many similarities. We all want things like kindness and safety. This beautiful, collaboratively-written picture book celebrates the similarities and differences of our stories. While told in four voices, it never becomes confusing, each voice harmonizing with the others. Dion MBD’s exquisite illustrations demand close looks and many revisits.— Timothy, Wild Rumpus
In this unique collaboration, four authors lyrically explore where they each come from--literally and metaphorically--as well as what unites all of us as humans.
Richly layered illustrations connect past and present, making for an accessible and visually striking look at history, family, and identity.
We come from stardust / our bodies made of ancient elements. / We come from single cells / evolving over billions of years. / We come from place, language, and spirit. / And each of us comes from story.
