Every page in Coexist by Lauren Grabois Fischer has the words, “This is my world.” Until the very end and you have, “Yes. This is our world.” And, not counting the parental afterwards and the extras, this is the entire story.
Therefore, this works best with the really young listener or the young reader who is just starting to read (as they will probably memorize). However, if you are like me when babysitting, or with the nephews, and had to read the same book over for that child, you can adapt it to “play with” it (How many flowers on a page? What color is this item? Is there anything hiding on this page with absolutely nothing but a dolphin and waves?)
And best is the color question as it is the most obvious. The details are minimal (if almost nothing), but the pinks, greens, blues, and other rainbow colors are jumping off the page. As I read this via Edelweiss (but yes, the book is out, I just found an older link I had saved), I am not sure the exact medium Devin Hunt used. It is modern, as the art is modernly slick and sleek. Everything is smoothly done.
Now, I am not jumping up and down over this book. It is a bit to “sugar sweet” for my personal tastes, but I know it will be getting attention for its community message and the togetherness idea of we are all here. This is reinforced by the two children of color at the end of the book.
