Welcome back to another Winning Wednesday! Today we’re giving away copies of All the Places We Call Home written by Patrice Gopo, illustrated by Jenin Mohammed.
For this giveaway, I partnered with our friends at WorthyKids, a children’s book publisher and division of Hachette Book Group. Five (5) lucky winners will each receive a copy of the picture book. See the rules for entering listed below. Check out the synopsis for the book.
Fall in love with this lyrically written and lushly illustrated exploration of identity and home that celebrates all the places and people who make us who we are.
“And where shall we go?” Mama asks as she tucks me in.
“South Africa. Where I was born.”
My answer summons Mama’s stories, stories that send us soaring back in time to when I was a baby. Out my window. Down my street. Across water. Across continents.
Where do you come from? Where does your family come from? For many children, the answers to these questions can transform a conversation into a journey around the globe.
In her first picture book, author Patrice Gopo illuminates how family stories help shape children, help form their identity, and help connect them with the broader world. Her lyrical language, paired with Jenin Mohammed’s richly textured artwork, creates a beautiful, stirring portrait of a child’s deep ties to cultures and communities beyond where she lays her head to sleep.
Ultimately, this story speaks a truth that all children need to hear: The places we come from are part of us, even if we can’t always be near them. All the Places We Call Home is a quiet triumph that encourages an awakening to our own stories and to the stories of those around us.
Five (5) winners will each win:
- 1 copy of All the Places We Call Home
Winners must be U.S. residents at least 18 years of age or older. Good Luck!
