"It's fun to find ways I'm like you and you're like me. It's fun to find ways we're different." In this colourful, inviting book, kids from preschool to lower elementary learn about diversity in terms they can understand: hair that's straight or curly, families with many people or few bodies that are big or small. With its wide-ranging examples and fun, high detailed art, I'm Like You, You're Like Me helps kids appreciate the ways they are alike and affirm their individual differences. A two-page adult section in the back provides tips and activities for parents and caregivers to reinforce the themes and lessons of the book.

"Bright, Cheerful...With the focus on kindness, respect, and tolerance, this title is an appropriate teaching tool for an early childhood environment". --School Library Journal
