Something, Someday

PreS-Gr 3–This book follows an unnamed brown-skinned child as they see something they want to change in their community. The picture book’s second-person point of view invites the audience to feel as if they’re a part of the story and empowered to change something within their community. The use of collage perfectly communicates the idea of what once was trash being transformed anew. Characters of varied skin tones and body types make up the child’s community, as everyone works together to change their world.
VERDICT This picture book’s timely message about coming together to make a change is a perfect addition to all libraries.
