A Child Like You
by Na'ima B. Robert
Illustrated by Nadine Kaadan
“Somewhere, out there,
in the wide, wide world,
a child like you is
Four brave children watch, listen, search, and feel, as they experience the inequalities, dangers and injustices of life in our world.
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.
Lyrical and powerful, this book is a passionate call to children everywhere to speak their truth and stand up for a better world.
