"This wonderful book should be a first choice for all collections
and is strongly recommended as a springboard for discussions about
differences." -School Library Journal (starred review) In this
acclaimed book, the author of the Newbery Honor Book To Be a Slave
shares his own story as he explores what makes each of us special.
A strong choice for sharing at home or in the classroom. Karen
Barbour's dramatic, vibrant paintings speak to the heart of
Lester's unique vision, truly a celebration of all of us. "This
stunning picture book introduces race as just one of many chapters
in a person's story" (School Library Journal). "Lester's poignant
picture book helps children learn, grow, discuss, and begin to
create a future that resolves differences" (Children's Literature).
Julius Lester said: "I write because our lives are stories. If
enough of these stories are told, then perhaps we will begin to see
that our lives are the same story. The differences are merely in
the details." I am a story. So are you. So is everyone.
