The Knowing

"I have a name and my name has a story," thinks a little girl as her mother braids her hair. "I have a look / a sound / a smell / a shape / a size...." But she is so much more than that, she thinks; everyone is! "All of these things are just what's showing / underneath all that I know / is The Knowing." This is a picture book that invites young readers to ponder the distinction between outer forms of identity and the inner light of consciousness that is even more central to our being.

From the Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter, political activist, and feminist icon Ani DiFranco comes a picture book with purpose, with heart, and with words that sing. In her signature folk style, Di Franco weaves a story that incorporates themes of individual power and collective responsibility. First-time illustrator Julia Mathew paints universal scenes of childhood in her family’s native India, glowing with honesty and love. Designed to be read aloud or sung, and pored over, this picture book is rich with meaningful text, poignant illustrations, and a unique message that will resonate with all.

Description

"The child goes on to share more about their life, from charming details like their slightly torn favorite blanket to the games they play with friends.... The message is lovely and delivered gently, and the author makes a familiar theme — the focus on inner life — feel fresh and new." — Kirkus Reviews
