"Together, the words and pictures work seamlessly to deliver a powerful message: What we do matters."--R. J. Palacio, The New York Times

When the news reports are flooded with tales of hatred and fear, a girl asks her papa what she can do to make the world a better place. "Come with me," he says. Hand-in-hand, they walk to the subway, tipping their hats to those they meet. The next day, the girl asks her mama what she can do--her mama says, "Come with me," and together they set out for the grocery, because one person doesn't represent an entire race or the people of a land. After dinner that night, the little girl asks if she can do something of her own--walk the dog . . . and her parents let her go. "Come with me," the girl tells the boy across the hall. Walking together, one step at a time, the girl and the boy begin to see that as small and insignificant as their part may seem, it matters to the world.

In this lyrical and timely story, author Holly M. McGhee and illustrator Pascal Lemaître champion the power of kindness, bravery, and friendship in the face of uncertainty.

Come With Me is a sweet story offering an answer to a big question. What can a child do to make the world a better place?

A beautiful picture book that teaches the young ones, how anyone, big or small can make a difference by being kind to others.

This is a lovely new book with fine illustrations. It has a positive message to share with children that we all have the power to make a difference in the world, no matter how small the act.
