For the children in your life or the child in you, enjoy Michael's first children's book! Illustrated by Ben Hodson, 'What I Be', is a visual and musical journey about self acceptance. It's okay to be just who you are and strive to be the best that you can be, by embodying the best characteristics of nature. Be as radiant as the sun, as healing as the rain or as generous as a tree.
This story first appeared as a song on the Michael Franti and Spearhead album "Everyone Deserves Music" and has been adapted in this book as a life affirming tale for children of all ages, shapes and cultures.
Includes a read-along CD that contains a hip hop and African musical collage of the story featuring the voices of Michael, his son - Franti-Rye, and Youssoupha Sidibe singing in his home language of Wollof and playing the Kora (Senegalese harp).
