Different Just like Meby Lori Mitchell
Young April is excited about visiting Grammie, but she has a whole week before she can go. The week goes by quickly, however, as April encounters new and diverse people while she runs errands with her mother. A little girl who talks with her hands, a woman who reads with her fingers, a grown-up who draws pictures for a living, and so many others fascinate her. April wonders why and how these people are different from her and learns how they are also very much alike. This celebration of a world of difference is sure to make every reader appreciate the distinctive qualities in themselves and everyone around them.

Focusing on the commonality of differences, rather than on differences themselves, is in line with what I teach my own kids, and fosters the notion of unity among people, regardless of appearances, behaviors or beliefs. Lori Mitchell's simple story and enchanting illustrations (realism meets folksy cartoons)serves as a necessary discussion-opener for all families. Every family should have a copy of this story for their young children.
When my daughter's classmates starting enquiring about 'her mommy's' skin disorder, this children's book came to my rescue. How often do you find a book that glorifies the remarkable things we have in common and praises the differences that make us unique. Every parent should own a copy of this book!
