Little Humans by Brandon Stanton

Little Humans
by Brandon Stanton [jP Stanton] 

This is a juvenile adaptation of the themes from Brandon Stanton’s larger, adult audience Humans of New York and Humans of New York, Stories, both of which shared small biographies of ordinary, everyday New Yorkers accompanied by Stanton’s street photography. In the adult books, the stories that accompany the photographs can range from highly emotion, to humorous, to inspirational. For this “kids version”, the stories are made a bit more simplistic by the message put across in the book is still a great one — we’re all part of the fabric of our world, and make our own unique contributions. The photos are crisp and clean, and feature dozens of cute kids, from extremely multicultural backgrounds. This is a terrific book to introduce kids to diversity issues, as well as to the broader scope of Stanton’s adult works.

[If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try Humans of New York, and Humans of New York, Stories, both by Brandon Stanton.]
