A #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!

Featured in its own episode in the Netflix original show Bookmarks: Celebrating Black Voices!


National Book Award winner Jacqueline Woodson and two-time Pura Belpré Illustrator Award winner Rafael López have teamed up to create a poignant, yet heartening book about finding courage to connect, even when you feel scared and alone.


There will be times when you walk into a room
and no one there is quite like you.

There are many reasons to feel different. Maybe it''s how you look or talk, or where you''re from; maybe it''s what you eat, or something just as random. It''s not easy to take those first steps into a place where nobody really knows you yet, but somehow you do it.

Jacqueline Woodson''s lyrical text and Rafael López''s dazzling art reminds us that we all feel like outsiders sometimes-and how brave it is that we go forth anyway. And that sometimes, when we reach out and begin to share our stories, others will be happy to meet us halfway.

(This book is also available in Spanish, as El Día En Que Descubres Quién Eres!)

Review

* “National Book Award winner and national treasure Jacqueline Woodson teams up with two-time Pura Belpré Award recipient Rafael López to deliver an empowering message to any child who has ever felt too different. . . . Woodson and López offer a needed message of comfort to preschool and early elementary students. Woodson''s lulling free verse reassures the reader that the world will ‘make some space,’ while López''s dreamy, near-translucent mixed-media illustrations thrum with playful joy. This gentle, powerful ode to diversity and acceptance belongs with all children.”— Shelf Awareness, starred review

*
 “A beautiful and inclusive story that encourages children to find the beauty in their own lives and share it with the world. . . . Each child feels very alone until they begin to share their stories and discover that it is nearly always possible to find someone a little like you. López’s vibrant illustrations bring the characters’ hidden and unspoken thoughts to light with fantastic, swirling color. Shifting hues and textures across the page convey their deep loneliness and then slowly transition into bright hopeful possibilities. Full-bleed illustrations on every page are thick with collaged patterns and textures that pair perfectly with melodic prose that begs to be read aloud. . . . There’s an essential acknowledgment that everyone will experience a time when no one is quite like them, when they can’t find their voice, or when they feel very alone. Woodson’s superlative text sees each character turn that moment of desolation into an opportunity to be brave and find hope in what they have in common. This masterful story deserves a place in every library.”— School Library Journal, starred review

*
“A bright jewel-toned palette and clever details, including a literal reflection of a better future, reveal hope and pride. . . . This reassuring, lyrical book feels like a big hug from a wise aunt as she imparts the wisdom of the world in order to calm trepidatious young children: One of these things is not like the other, and that is actually what makes all the difference. A must-have book about the power of one’s voice and the friendships that emerge when you are yourself.” Kirkus Reviews, starred review

*
“Woodson’s poetic lines give power to each child’s experience. . . . López paints the book’s array of children as students in the same classroom; patterns and colors on the children’s clothing and the growing things around them fill the spreads with life. Woodson’s gentle, lilting story and López’s artistry create a stirring portrait of the courage it takes to be oneself.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

* “Woodson’s lyrical text is gently reassuring as it moves between broad discussion and specific examples of difference and discomfort, which emphasize children moving across cultures but will speak to children from all backgrounds and experiences. Mixed-media illustrations . . . combine bold with soft colors and textures in a slightly shaded tropical palette; compositions employ creative and insightful perspectives to suit the characters’ feelings. . . . The artist frequently incorporates a ruler into the illustrations, which perhaps speaks to the children’s perceptions of how they measure up to others. This lovely and sensitive treatment of adjustment deserves a spot in any collection for youngsters.”— The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, starred review

“Woodson catches the uncertainty, even fear, that comes with new situations. But her lyrical language also captures the moment when confidence sparks and friendships are born. . . . The bold, bright artwork features a diverse cast of kids. . . . The important message plays out in a striking design that mixes the everyday with flights of fancy. Woodson, a recent National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, is one of kidlit''s brightest stars, and this should find lots of eager hands.”— Booklist

“What will it take for a child who feels different to share her stories? . . . Like Woodson’s memoir Brown Girl Dreaming, this story places great value on literacy, reading, and imagination. The matte-finished pages feature illustrations in vivid, brilliant colors, with repeated appearances of flying birds and lush, twining vines and flowers.”— Horn Book

This is a gentle, optimistic, and realistic introduction to the challenges that can confront younger kids at a new school. Think kindergarten to second grade, perhaps third. Parents can read it to their kids to open the door to a conversation as the new school year starts (“…But Mom, what happens if…?), or during the year when problems crop up. It acknowledges problems could occur and suggests a coping strategy.

It’s a great book for teachers to read to their classes, to start a conversation on acceptance.

It’s versatile; it can support kids who 1) have a different skin color; 2) don’t speak English well; 3) have a disability; 4) aren’t athletic; 5) stutter; 6) are poor; 7) are either shy or too loud to cover their nervousness; 8) eat different food or have a food allergy; 9) just moved from the city/country…See where I’m heading? It’s for all kids, because everyone has something they''re nervous about.

I liked this book for many reasons and I couldn’t fail to notice the author is a poet. While the book is not a poem, the words flow like a river. And the pictures are colorful and friendly. Enjoy reading this with your youngsters.

The kind of book that makes you weep the first time you read it and then feel like you HAVE to read this aloud to the kids in your class, family, community. We are all unique or not quite like others--which can make us feel alone in the world UNTIL we start to share our stories, our lives with others. Then we find that we are similar in some ways to those around us or that others are open to the new world we might introduce to them.

Woodson''s language is beautiful (of course) -
"There will be times when you walk into a room and no one there is quite like you."
"There will be times when..."
"There will be times when the world feels like a place that you''re standing all the way outside of..."
"There will be times when you walk into a room and no one there is quite like you until the day you begin to share your stories."
YES! Read this aloud for pure enjoyment. And then read it aloud again and pose questions for student-led conversations--questions that could also lead to writing.
***Have you ever experienced a "There will be times when..."?
***What does the author mean when she writes "There will be times when the world feels like a place that you''re standing all the way outside of"?
***Or a time when you only had your "brave self--steady as steel and ready" even though you didn''t "know what you were ready for:?

Rafael''s illustrations are stunning. With illustrations of each child in that place at that moment (e.g., the classroom, the playground), but then also illustrations of the richness of that child''s life (e.g., Rigoberto in a beautiful Venezuela, a girl seeing the world through books, etc.). You could project a two-page layout and pose questions like,
***"What do you notice?"
***"What do you notice as similar and different between the illustrations with Rigoberto on this page and this page?"
***"Why do you think the illustrator chose to include that?"

Several pages include an image of a ruler--maybe to signify that a particular scene is in the school but it also made me think about the pressure on kids to "measure up" in many ways when they are at school. Might be worth conversation with students.

One more thought. Before reading aloud, ask students to make predictions based on the title. After reading this aloud, go back to the title and ask,
***"What does the author mean by ''the day you begin''?" and maybe even "How can we do that right now?"

The Day You Begin by Jacqueline Woodson and illustrated by Rafael Lopez (Nancy Paulsen Books, 2018) is a beautiful portrayal of what it feels like to be an outsider, to grapple with differences in a world that can be cruel. Yet the text and illustrations flow like a hug from our best supporters, encouraging us to be ourselves and hold strong. When that friend comes along who accepts who accepts us unconditionally...that''s the day we begin. A book for anyone needing those special connections.

This is such a beautiful, captivating story that is wonderfully illustrated. The words & pictures will truly captivate children from ages 2 to 10. There is an aspect of every bit of the story that every child can relate to, whether on a personal basis or in relation to someone they may know. In one section, a child says his name is like a musical song once again when spoken by his teacher - tears spring to my eyes each time I read these words. Every page presents a different perspective of how a child may feel while at school for the 1st time or 5th or 100th. And in the end the children realize as different as we each may be, we are all similar, too.
