Description

Teachers could use this book as an icebreaker discussion to enable a new class to get to know themselves and others, for thoughtful artwork based on the fun labelled diagrams in the book or for PSHE lessons about expressing and celebrating individuality.

Philosophy for children this certainly is: I lost count of how many times it opens up space for reflection and discussion. Distrusting the apple’s convincing appearance, the child’s imagination spirals upwards and outwards into a madcap fantasy world – maybe it’s a star from outer space with tiny aliens on board?as Yoshitake’s reflection on individualism and the importance of building strong selves is a delight. Soon, Kevin realizes that he is the embodiment of all his younger selves and although he was made by two parents, he created his own history and developed his particular characteristics. Storytelling can go beyond narrating the written word, and I think there is merit in pupils ability to speak narratively about their own experiences. However, before he can bring his cloned self to life, he must embark on a quest to uncover the essence of his individuality.

This is a wonderful picturebook about the nature of individuality, perfect fo r building a classroom or school culture where the uniqueness of each person is celebrated. What is shared may or may to be quite personal, but crucially, that decision is made by the children. The book invites readers on a whimsical journey that follows a young boy’s desire to create a robot clone of himself. I could share – and I have just thought of this now, and this is the kind of free flowing retrieval of anecdotes that this lesson is all about – the time when I was taking a group of kids to the swimming baths with a youth charity, and I had to choose between wearing my massive glasses in the pool and looking weird, or going without, and lacking my eyesight.

Bursting with imaginative illustrations, this thought-provoking book offers an engaging and enjoyable experience that not only sparks discussion but also serves as an ideal catalyst for exploring the concept of each person’s distinct uniqueness. The boy lists everything that comes to his mind, from details about his family and particular features of his body, to many of the things he likes and dislikes.
