Paperback
Warm, simple words & appealing illustrations invite children to discover, accept, & affirm individual differences. A gentle introduction to diversity for the very young. "You & I are alike in many ways. We may be the same age or live on the same street...We are different from each other, too." I'M LIKE YOU, YOU'RE LIKE ME puts diversity on a young child's level: hair that's straight or curly, families with many people or few, bodies that are big or small - each one unique but just right for that person. Boys & girls discover that even though people are different, they can enjoy being together & learning about each other. Important topics like talking, listening, feelings, & cooperation are explored in the most basic terms, & the book ends with a wonderful declaration: Being "not exactly the same" is a good reason to like each other! {Leader's Guide available}.
