Four brave children watch, listen, search, and feel, as they experience the inequalities, dangers, and injustices of life in our world. A stunning look into how our world can be shaped and changed by young voices across the planet.
Inspired by real-life activists and campaigners Greta Thunberg, Yusra Mardini, Marley Dias and Iqbal Masih, each of these children is filled with courage, determination and hope. They campaign to help save the planet, show that refugees can contribute and show leadership in sport in their new land, they build a library of 1000 books depicting black girls, they speak out against the outrage of child slavery.
“Somewhere, out there, in the wide, wide world,a child like you is watching …”
Lyrical and powerful, this book is a passionate call to children everywhere to speak their truth and stand up for a better world.
Na'ima B. Robert is a powerful writer and brings a wonderful perspective to all her books. 'As a young mum living in South London, Black, Muslim, wearing hijab and niqab, I definitely did not look like any writer I had ever seen!'
Nadine Kadaan is the illustrator and she is also a writer of many books. She has always had a passion for writing for children.
Nadine is published in several countries and languages and her mission is to champion empowered and inclusive representation in children’s books so that every child can see themselves in a story.
A Child Like You is a book for schools, libraries and homes everywhere, a true call to find a way forward to make the planet a better place.
