A coming of age visual poem, as the author Jonkers calls it himself, Be is a well crafted and beautifully illustrated poem that revolves around themes of identity, life, and essentially teaches us how to be human. The colorful approach by the author to an important life lesson makes this poem a great way to get children engaged in a completely different and fun activity they will enjoy, and at the same time, it will lead them through the process of learning something new and inspiring.

The visual aspect of Be is very special, both in terms of color and style. Even from the beginning, Jonkers sets the mood of the poem by using words in different colors in the introduction, which builds up slowly to the most important part of Be: words to live by. Each word is designed in a different way, subtly following the meaning behind it and presenting it to the young reader as positive, encouraging, educational, and fun.

Do you want to know what these amazing words of wisdom are that every child should learn and use early on in life? I warmly recommend that you read this inspirational and colorful poem, which will brighten up your day, as well as provide great fun for your children! This visually enticing piece of writing will stay with you long after you read it, with the inspirational and meaningful message it conveys through eye-catching illustrations, and the design of the words themselves.
