If You Were a City Written by Kyo Maclear

If you were a city, how would you be? Asking readers this question opens the door to a celebration of the diversity of cities as well as a hopeful vision for future urban centers. This colorful poem is perfect for engaging kids in a conversation about what their city is like and how their idea of home might change in other cities. It's a brilliant companion to Patricia MacLachlan's My Friend Earth, another book illustrated by Sanna.

This book will set your heart aflame, both with hope and rage, and should be read by every crip futurist, climate change activist, and mutual aid organizer.
