I’m Here

This book was sent to me by the publisher.

By: Peter Reynolds

This book is beautiful in concept and presentation. It is not a picture book that lends itself to a story synopsis as the boy is alone and the story is about his perceptions of the moment, how he sees things differently to those around him. It does however touch on topics such as isolation, difference and imagination.

The media release states ‘I’m Here is an extraordinary picture book that gives voice to the often silent world of a child struggling to connect with his peers and speaks to the universal need to be loved and heard’. I don’t usually use quotes from press release but in this case I think it explains it best.

This is a stunning book, simple in it’s scope and presentation, both text wise and illustratively. One of the very few books that families living with autism will be able to relate to.
