Mom, Am I a Clam? by Sylvitria Widoyo and Zanjabila Khadija is a picture book for young children. Look-Look had always wondered why he didn't look like all the other clams. One day, when he was a little older, he decided to question his mother about his appearance to get the answers he desperately wanted. He asked her whether he was a clam, to which his mother replied that he was not, leaving Look-Look feeling even more confused. At school, Look-Look wanted to hang around with the other clams, but they didn't let him. Over time, Look-Look discovered many new things, including the reason he looked different from his classmates. Do you know what kind of sea creature Look-Look could be? Read this wonderful book to find out if you are right.
Mom, Am I a Clam? was a pleasure to read. Not only does it have a beautiful storyline about self-acceptance, but it also teaches about the environment, and how we as humans can help prevent its decline. These are not the only things the reader will take away from the book, as there are more important lessons to be learned, and will prove important to youngsters. Children will enjoy the colorful illustrations by the talented Ssaphira, as they help bring the characters alive, making the reading experience that much more enjoyable. The writing is fast-paced and keeps the reader interested. I want to wish Sylvitria Widoyo and Zanjabila Khadija all the best in future creations. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing more from you soon.
