A SHIFT IN PERSPECTIVE: YOU MATTER encourages readers to see the world from different points of view: a pair of bird-feeders, for example, or the pigeons they are feeding. With each subtle shift in perspective, Christian brings in new context, creating a world that feels as big as it is immediate.

AN EXERCISE IN EMPATHY: The perspective shifts Christian employs throughout this narrative are a playful way to engage with multiple points of view–and understand how different people may see things in different ways.--from the publisher
