We Belong, a Book Recommendation
With bright digital illustrations and a bouncy, engaging rhythm, Laura Purdie Salas introduces the reader to the many ways we are different as well as the many ways we all belong.
Tall or short. Loud or quiet. We all belong.
We are not always the same each day. How we feel changes—all the time. Happy like a cloud or sad like a cave. “Teardrops and smiles both can help us connect.
Everyone is different but no matter how different we might look or feel, inside we are alike, sharing similar feelings, having similar dreams—needing friends, loving family, being scared.
We Belong is an upbeat verse picture book: “Jauntily rhyming text coupled with colorful, detailed digital illustrations outline the numerous types of people that inhabit the world.” And we all belong!
