This is the book we all know and love by Marlo Thomas and her friends —brought to new life with brand new illustrations to captivate and inspire a new generation of readers on a journey of the heart.
Whether you are opening Free to Be...You and Me for the first time or the one hundredth time you will be engaged and transformed by this newly beautifully illustrated compilation of inspirational stories, songs, and poems. The sentiments of thirty-five years ago are as relevant today as when this book was published. Celebrating individuality and challenging stereotypes empowers both children and adults with the freedom to be who they want to be and to have compassion and empathy for others who may be different.
Working closely with Marlo and co-creator Carole Hart, Peter H. Reynolds, the New York Times Best Selling Children’s Book Author/Illustrator, conjured his whimsical drawings throughout the book bringing a new sense of unity and warmth to the pages.
You will find yourself marveling at the illustrations, nodding in agreement with the stories and poems, and singing the words to all the classic songs! It is wonderful that the thoughts, ideas, and emotions the creators envisioned so many years ago can still have a magical effect on children today. Marlo Thomas' New York Times best seller is updated and repackaged for a new generation of young readers - it includes an audio CD in the back of the book with 4 free to be classics!
Notable writers, artists, and musicians joined forces to produce this bestselling book which teaches children about tolerance and diversity. In this new edition, enjoy the same stories, songs and poems in an updated package that is perfect for a new generation of readers.
