'A good starting point for conversations about inclusion.' The Bookseller
From the bestselling author of How Are You Feeling Today?, this picture book encourages children to celebrate uniqueness and diversity and helps them to challenge stereotypes.
The Same but Different explores the ways in which we're all unique as well as the similarities we all share. Using everyday examples, clear explanations and colourful illustrations by Sarah Jennings, this book prompts children to broaden their perspectives and rejoice in their differences. After all, imagine how boring the world would be if everyone was exactly the same!
This book covers lots of ways in which we're different, including how we look, where we live, the languages we speak, what our families are like and what we believe in.
