room with children's drawings on the walls

As COVID-19 began its spread around the world, the International Youth Library in Munich, Germany invited children to portray themselves during this unusual time. The response was overwhelming. Over 800 self-portraits from 42 countries and every continent arrived at the IYL. Children aged 3-18 depict themselves grey and frightened or colorful and lively, sometimes with a face mask and sometimes without – mostly with big, alert eyes. A curated portion of these self-portraits make up the exhibit "Children Draw Themselves: Self-Portraits from All Over the World In Times of Covid," now on display in Worlds of Words: Center of Global Literacies and Literatures in the University of Arizona College of Education.
