Written and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds
In his extraordinary way of blending message with art, Peter H. Reynolds, creator of The Dot, Ish, and Playing from the Heart, brings young readers to speak from the heart and make the world a better place for all.
In a series of double spreads, children are encouraged to speak from the heart "with words, with action, with creativity" when they spot a lonely person or someone being hurt, or when they see an empty canvas or lot that could blossom to life, or when there are ideas and beauty to be shared.
It's about being yourself and being your best self, helping everyone to understand and to say something too.
Sometimes you'll say something
and no one will be listening.
But keep saying
what is in your heart ...
... and you will find someone who listens.
Keep saying it ...
... and you may be surprised
to find the whole world
Peter H. Reynolds encourages all to say something in their own way, recognizing that some have strong voices that are easily heard and others are quieter, imparting their messages through poetry, art, fashion and science. This acknowledgement of differences, including in our ways to communicate, makes Say Something! relevant and accessible to all.
