Why am I Me?

Why Am I Me?  by Paige Britt; illustrated by Sean Qualls and Selina Alko. 2017. Acrylic paint, colored pencil, and collage. Published by Scholastic Press.

Brief summary: A young boy and girl boarding a train separately ask the same questions along the train ride as they see all the different people of various cultures, ages, and genders. Why am I Me? 

Comments: Sparse words as the boy and girl notice all the different types of people along the train ride.  There is a Venn diagram feel at the conclusion with his head and the girl’s which could spark what things we all have in common and what we have that are just unique to ourselves.
