  • Product Description

    Presented as a thoughtful, poetic exchange between two characters -- who don't realize they are thinking and asking the very same questions -- this beautiful celebration of our humanity and diversity invites readers of all ages to imagine a world where there is no you or me, only we. 

    If the first step toward healing the world is to build bridges of empathy and celebrate rather than discriminate, Why Am I Me? helps foster a much-needed sense of connection, compassion, and love.


    Why Am I Me? is a vibrant and tender exploration of the profound and confounding question that -- sooner or later -- occurs to us all all. The brilliantly colored, euphoric illustrations are packed with empathy and beautiful details of human existence. An ordinary trip home becomes a journey in wonder and compassion when we pause to imagine a life other than our own." -- Sophie Blackall, Caldecott Medalist 

    Why Am I Me? asks the question we're all asking. Selina and Sean's paintings bring this love story gloriously to the page with so much energy and light, I felt like I had been dropped right into the center of everything. Loved it!" -- Jacqueline Woodson, Newbery Honoree and National Book Award Winner 

    "A gorgeous book -- and it's such a kid-friendly way to talk about 'windows and mirros' with children. Can't wait to share it with my own child!" -- Grace Lin, Newbery Honoree 

    "Gentle illustrations that capture a timely theme: the value of empathy." -- Emily Nussbaum, Pulitzer Prize-winning television critic for The New Yorker 

    Why Am I Me? is one of the most beautiful books I have had the great pleasure of seeing in recent years! Such a perfect blend of words and images. Selina and Sean's art literally took my breath away." -- Tomie DePaola
