At a time when heritage, identity and belonging are the topic of conversation in the UK, Nadine’s picture book takes its inspiration from her Jamaican heritage and contemporary life in England. Through the illustration of these Jamaican proverbs the book seeks to engage families and communities of all cultures in dialogue, in celebrating our similarities and differences.
