They All Saw a Cat meets The Important Book in this sensitive and impactful picture book about seeing the world from different points of view by Caldecott and Coretta Scott King Honoree Christian Robinson.
In this full, bright, and beautiful picture book, many different perspectives around the world are deftly and empathetically explored—from a pair of bird-watchers to the pigeons they’re feeding. Young readers will be drawn into the luminous illustrations inviting them to engage with the world in a new way and see how everyone is connected, and that everyone matters
You Matter is a book my daughter chose on her own out of our to be read pile of books. We enjoyed the illustrations which remind me of Eric Carle or Leo Leonni. The message is hopeful and repetitive to remind us all that we have a place in this world, no matter how diverse. We matter, we are not alone and we are loved. Highly recommend! We found this book to be timely for children. Thanks Simon and Schuster for sending us this beautiful book.
