Staff Reviews


Aracelis Girmay's changing, changing is an homage to the experiences that shape us, and to the persons/spaces/places we might become. As much collage as visual poem, this book is a foray into imagination and possibility. It's a page turner, but you do not want to turn the page. My only wish is that it could come in poster-sized!

Description


Changing, Changing is a joyful celebration of many things. Of the world the children take into themselves as they are reincarnated again and again. Of the imagination, which knows no bounds as they experience the universe from the new perspective of each transformation. As children of African descent, their story is also a celebration of Blackness. Their tumble through the universe is a journey through life, a discovery of the world, themselves, and each other--making Changing, Changing a celebration of love and of friendship as well. Adults will see the deeper philosophical message of change as a defining and driving force in life, while children (and adults, too) will delight in this playful romp through the everyday wonders that surround us.
