Review: Where?

Where? is an impassioned plea from Jordan Collins to be seen as a human being like everyone else, not as someone different.

Where? is the question Jordan is so often asked, the question that creates a feeling of being ‘other’ rather than the same.

Where? is a poem Jordan wrote as a teenager and performed at a poetry event, where it garnered heartfelt responses from the audience. It also led to this picture book, a published version of that very poem.

Illustrator Phil Lesnie has taken Jordan’s words and brought them to life in a way that helps translate and expand on them.

Where? is an opportunity for families and classes to explore the idea of identity and belonging, and reminds us that we all want to be seen as the same.
