Milo Imagines the World

Are they what they look like?

Milo goes on a weekend subway journey with his older sister to a location far from his home. While his sister is constantly on her phone, Milo observes the people around him, speculates what they might do after the journey, and sketches it. However, at the end of the trip, he realizes something telling for someone his age.

We picked this book for its title. The story revolves around a little boy's subway ride and his imagination, with big plot twists towards the end. While the story's message is that you shouldn't judge humans based on how they look or what they wear, the story may not be suitable for all children and requires parental discretion. The illustrations are ideal for the plot.

Milo learns not to judge people based on their appearance in Matt de la Peña's Milo Imagines the World, which is gorgeously illustrated by Christian Robinson.
