One of the most amazing things a picture book can offer readers is a new perspective; the realization that the world looks different through everyone’s eyes. More than that, the realization that you have the power to change your perspective, and derive confidence from it. Awareness, empathy, understanding – they all begin with a look through a different lens. And In our ever-busier, ever more digital world, a great picture book can still expand a child’s perspective and empower them to embrace the diversity and change around and within them.
