What would you take?
Imagine you were leaving for a new country and could bring only what would fit in a small suitcase. Which things would you choose to say to the world, "Hi there, this is me!".
In this picture, various children - inspired by their remarkable teacher - talk about what they'd bring with them if they could take only one suitcase to their new home: photographs, a favourite book, grandfather's beret. Which things do they love most? What best expresses who they are? At the end, the question is posed to the reader: "What would you take? Which things would say to the world, this is me!". The book ends with a pop up suitcase, which the child can then fill with his or her favourite things.
From the New York Times bestselling team of Jamie Lee Curtis and Laura Cornell, a picture book (with a pop up suitcase!) that explores and celebrates identity and where our families come from.
