Sweet People Are Everywhere (Children Around the World Books, Diversity Books)
"The poetic stylings of Alice Walker will convince children across the world that Sweet People Are Everywhere... Children of all ages will be able to enjoy the illustrations; the timeless images show how beautifully diverse the world is." - Seattle Book Review
Sweet People Are Everywhere, an illustrated picture book featuring a poem by internationally renowned writer and activist Alice Walker, is a powerful celebration of humanity. The poem addresses a young boy getting his first passport, taking the boy––and the reader––on a journey through a series of countries around the globe where “sweet people” can be found.
They are all over the globe. Sweet people can be found from Canada to Congo to Cuba, from Afghanistan to Australia, from Ireland to Iraq…there are sweet people in the thirty-seven places listed in these pages and almost everywhere else on the planet. Take a trip through the lines of this large-hearted poem by Alice Walker and meet some of them!
An ode to humanity, Walker’s heartening message is celebrated through Quim Torres’ deeply felt illustrations.
