Depicting different situations from sleeping and dreaming, to playing and laughing, to occasional boredom, this book breaks down barriers and negates cultural differences. As readers turn the pages, the message builds strength: Ultimately, no matter what we look like, or where we come from, we can find links to ourselves in one and other. What do children from all over the world have in common? Marcos Farina's You and Me and Everyone Else shows what connects people - no matter where they come from or how they look.
