“Whoever you are”

Welcome to Buddy’s Book Review! A review of our favorite children’s books here at The Nest Schools. We thoroughly believe in the power of literature and are excited to introduce wonderful new children’s books to our families in hopes that they will expand their own home libraries as we expand ours!   

How will we review and rate each book? Each book will be rated in terms of likeness to our core values: kindness, fun, wellness, and innovation. Five beautiful feathers will be given for the core value we think that each book represents the best. Happy Reading! 

“Whoever you are”

Written by Mem Fox, Illustrated by Leslie Staub

“Whoever You Are,” written by Mem Fox and illustrated by Leslie Staub, is a beautifully written and illustrated story that captures the diversity around the world and the universal connections we all share.  

From our skin tone to our homes, schools, and overall lifestyles, this story starts out emphasizing the differences that can be seen in us all. With simple yet honest language, Mem Fox’s writing makes it easy for young children to honor our uniqueness and truly understand diversity. As the story progresses, Fox unites every reader by sharing the fundamental similarities that unite us all!  

Leslie Staub so beautifully ties in illustrations that visually tell the same story and so flawlessly showcases different cultures, customs, and traditions. Each page is filled with vibrant colors and intricate details that call on young children to explore, wonder, and question! 

From text to illustration, Mem Fox and Leslie Staub’s work in “Whoever You Are” turns complex topics into a gentle and easy-to-understand story that is sure to be loved by many.  

A heartwarming journey of unity and understanding, “Whoever you are” is a must-have for your child’s library and one that Buddy is proud to award five feathers for KINDNESS!
