These children and animals are all very different to each other. Some are big, some are small. Some are gentle, some are rough. Everyone is playful, but who's the best at hiding? One thing's certain: they all love a good bedtime story! The perfect picture book for little ones who are just beginning to make sense of their place in the world.

This is a lovely book. Showing the differences between people in such a happy way. My daughter liked the pictures in this book as their is a lot of detail and you can tell by the facial expressions how their feeling. A very easy to read book, so this will help with my daughters learning to read.

This is a really fun book, with lots of bright colourful illustrations. All about how people and animals are the same but different. My little boy read this book to me and he with very few words, he found this easy to read himself. The pictures tell the story and he really liked the ending.

This is a great book, with lots going on on every page, so there is plenty to discuss as the story goes on. As a family, we loved the use of animals and children, my kids love animals and could relate to the children in the book. We especially loved how the animals and children represent or present each of the differences the book discusses. The use of comparing animals and children to highlight how we can be different is a novel approach and one my children enjoyed and appreciated. 

We loved the focus on embracing and accepting others and their differences, a great positive message for children and adults alike. It gave us the opportunity to discuss issues like inclusivity and acceptance as a family, and allowed us to talk about all the ways in which others can be different and why that is a positive thing. We loved the fun, vibrant and cute illustrations and the usage of colour which helped keep the children's interest throughout.

The book was great because of it's simplicity, it used a fun, simple rhyming scheme which was engaging. The book did not contain a lot of text and had just enough words to convey the message of the book. The book also came with a smartphone audio book which was free to download and access, this made the book a more immersive experience for the children and gave them a different way to listen, opening them up to new formats to consume the information and grab their attention. 

All in all, it's a fantastic and fun book which is a celebration of difference and the things that make each person unique and special!

What a beautiful book lovely illustrations that catch the imagination with a message that celebrates our differences.
This was the first time my youngest had the opportunity to listen to a audio book and this completely brought this book alive she loved the music for the introduction and reached up high for tall and got involved with snoring for the sleepy and goodnight. 
Loved the book on its on as encourage lots of chats, pointing and faces made. The audio made it engaging and interactive over and over again they asked to hear it.

I won this book on Toppsta and my kids love it. It basically teaches youngsters that we are all the same, and equal even if we are different. 
The book is written in rhyme, which makes it fun to read. It is also very colourful and fun. Big thumbs up from us!
