All the Places We Call Home, Hardback Book

All the Places We Call Home Hardback

Hardback

Description

"And where shall we go?" Mama asks as she tucks me in. "South Africa. Where I was born."My answer summons Mama's stories, stories that send us soaring back in time to when I was a baby.

Out my window. Down my street. Across water. Across continents. Where do you come from? Where does your family come from? For many children, the answers to these questions can transform a conversation into a journey around the globe. In her first picture book, author Patrice Gopo illuminates how family stories help shape children, help form their identity, and help connect them with the broader world.

Her lyrical language, paired with Jenin Mohammed's richly textured artwork, creates a beautiful, stirring portrait of a child's deep ties to cultures and communities beyond where she lays her head to sleep. Ultimately, this story speaks a truth that all children need to hear: The places we come from are part of us, even if we can't always be near them.

All the Places We Call Home is a quiet triumph that encourages an awakening to our own stories and to the stories of those around us.
