We Are All Connected. WHERE AM I FROM is a tender story that helps children feel connected, regardless of what their address is. It draws on many layers from a birth country, to nationality, to mothers, showing children we are all connected. Make sure to take a second and third read to appreciate the illustrations, which are all real graffiti murals…stunning.

I love the way this story makes us think about ethnic and regional origins in a fresh way. The cast of characters begins a gentle argument about where they are from. It seems each child has blinders on and can only view the question from their own perspective--until the youngest comes up with a universal answer that unites all children in a single origin story. A great choice for boosting a contemporary understanding that regional differences don’t matter as much as we might think, accompanied by fantastical graffiti artwork.
