Description

When it comes to explaining physical, cultural and religious differences to children, it can be difficult to know where to begin. What Makes Us Unique? provides an accessible introduction to the concept of diversity, teaching children how to respect and celebrate people's differences and that ultimately, we are all much more alike than we are different. Additional questions at the back of the book allow for further discussion.
Child psychologist Dr. Jillian Roberts designed the Just Enough series to empower parents/caregivers to start conversations with young ones about difficult or challenging subject matter. Other books in the series deal with birth, death, separation and divorce. For more information, visit www.justenoughseries.com.

Editorial Reviews

"The value of diversity is woven through the child-like drawing and reinforces the topic of variety and uniqueness. The illustrations sparkle with colour and warmth...The underlying powerful message is one of respecting the variety in our world, and readers are left with the optimistic spin of celebrating differences. It is never too early to teach even the youngest that we are all different and special in our own way."

— CM Magazine

"This is a good book as a one-on-one read aloud or with a small group of students. It would be a perfect 'just in time' book after a distressing event...or to help explain a negative current event in the news...This would be a valuable book in the home, classroom and school library."
