I Am You: A Book about Ubuntu
We may be different, but our hearts beat the same.
In southern Africa, there is a belief called ubuntu―the idea that we are all connected. No matter where we’re from or who we are, a person is a person through their connections to other people. With simple, lyrical text and charming artwork, this lively picture book first published in South Africa is the perfect introduction to the concept of ubuntu for young kids. A celebration of friendship and kindness, the book shows children the many ways that we are all one.
Revised edition: Previously published as We Are One, this edition of I Am You includes editorial revisions.
