About this deal

as Yoshitake’s reflection on individualism and the importance of building strong selves is a delight.

Does the book contain anything that teachers would wish to know about before recommending in class (strong language, sensitive topics etc. I chose to go without glasses, but because I couldn’t see properly, I tried to take the wrong kids onto the slide, which was among the most excruciatingly awkward moments of my life. The circle is just to cement the idea that we need to listen to each other, and make sure that everyone can see each other.He realizes the diversity of the feelings he has, the intensity of the dreams he grows, the joy of interacting with different people and the secrecy of some of his most intimate thoughts. Follows a child's hilarious, wildly inventive train of thought as he decides to make a clone of himself and starts to ponder what makes him HIM. What is shared may or may to be quite personal, but crucially, that decision is made by the children. A few months ago I recommended you Yoshitake’s It Might Be An Apple, a beautiful piece on perception and first impressions and now I am happy to talk about Can I Build Another Me?

follows a child’s hilarious, wildly inventive train of thought as he decides to make a clone of himself – and starts to ponder what makes him HIM. Kevin, a little boy fed up with doing things he doesn’t want to do, like homework and daily chores, decides to spend all his pocket money on a robot that he intends to turn into a clone of himself. Some kids might point out birthmarks or scars, some of them might talk about trapping their fingers, or about a special piece of jewellery they are wearing, or why they are wearing mehndi at the moment. I cannot remember exactly who first mentioned this book on Twitter a few years ago, but to whoever it was, I am eternally grateful.

The time should be given for the children to add detail to their stories, when telling them – time for embellishment and questioning. I leave traces of me”, Kevin admits, thinking of how his parents identify his mess or how his peers recognize his belongings. Each page shows something different, such as his Likes and Dislikes and the Things I Can and Can’t Do.

follows a child’s hilarious, wildly inventive train of thought following the death of his grandfather and the discovery of his journal, in which his grandfather had jotted his thoughts about life after death and the ideal heaven. Some children are more than happy to wear their heart on their sleeve, whereas others may be much more reticent. Bursting with imaginative illustrations, this thought-provoking book offers an engaging and enjoyable experience that not only sparks discussion but also serves as an ideal catalyst for exploring the concept of each person’s distinct uniqueness. Soon, Kevin realizes that he is the embodiment of all his younger selves and although he was made by two parents, he created his own history and developed his particular characteristics.Often, the fact that some children are willing to share does prompt other children to be a bit more confident to reflect and share. It Might Be An Apple – The story follows a child’s hilarious, wildly inventive train of thought through all the things an apple might be if it is not, in fact, an apple.
