A book about understanding and appreciating each other

Many lesson plans in school focus on embracing all forms of diversity, and a wonderful picture book on the topic to share with students is I'M LIKE YOU, YOU'RE LIKE ME by Cindy Gainer.

Based on the original edition released in 1998, this picture book has fresh new art, but delivers the same classic message that has sold more than 46,000 copies! Young readers will have a great time learning how they're alike and different from their hair to their families to where they live and more.

The art in this book is sure to grab children's attention and teachers and parents will love it because it opens up room for discussion on cultures and backgrounds. A two-page adult section in the back also provides tips and activities for parents and caregivers to reinforce the themes and lessons of the book. As if that's not enough, try to find the black terrier pup throughout the book--The pup is one of the publisher, Free Spirit's founder's rescue dogs.
