All kids are the same. They run, they touch, they learn, and work hard daily so that they can grow. They laugh, they share, and they make friends. They cry when they get hurt, and at night they go to sleep. Kids can be different even though they share the same surname; some can be white, some can be brown, some can be red, and some can be black. They all come in different shapes and sizes. Some girls are rough and like boys, and some boys are soft and gentle like girls. Some parents find it hard to accept children who are different from others.
Other Kids Are Kids Almost Just Like You by Christina Engela celebrates the concept of diversity and how precious every child is. This book is about intolerance, diversity, and bullying and encourages readers to accept everyone, irrespective of their differences based on gender, race, and color. The book also emphasizes being compassionate to everyone, regardless of their color, status, and gender. Bullying and intolerance are relevant topics in today's times and this book is good for read-aloud sessions in classrooms to help children be more tolerant and compassionate towards others. The illustrations lend clarity to the concept and help readers connect with the author's words. The author's approach to the subject is unique and different, and she makes the book appealing to children with the help of colorful illustrations. It is a good book to teach children to be kind and compassionate.
