  1. Working in a new centre means we have very little in the way of resources. Any time I see a book with awesome messages I add it to the list of things I would love for my room. This sounds great!

  2. Wow – what a beautiful book, love to win this book to help explain to my Cambodian and Tongan born children some of the differences between their life in Aust and life in their birth countries and how they are same but a little bit different!

  3. Being an immigrant and having children who have cousins and other relatives who live in different parts of the world, with different living conditions, this will be a good book to share together.

  4. I love the sound of this book. It is such an important concept to teach children and I hope that with the likes of these books, one day prejudice and discrimination will be behind us. I try to teach my son about difference but also about sameness. This book would be a wonderful tool to use.

  5. I’d love to read this book to my kids because lately they have been noticing “differences” and I’d like them to understand that we’re all the “same” inside – we all have feelings, needs and rights. If I win, I would then donate the book to our local primary school :-)

  6. If I win I’d give it to my kids school – what an awesome message for all kids.

  7. I’d love this book because it teaches about diversity and how everyone is different, but really we’re all fairly similar.

  8. What a great teaching resource! The wonderful theme in this book can help strengthen children’s understanding of the richness diversity can bring and how both our similarities and differences can bring us closer together.

  9. The theme of this book sounds interesting and a timely resource for my DD who has just started asking why people are different.

    • A lovely book to add to our homeschool. We love to learn about children in our own country and all over the world.

  10. This looks like a beautiful book, perfect to read to my girls who are starting to notice the differences between people around them. I think it’s important for them to know that despite our obvious differences we are all ultimately the same.

  11. I’m about to start primary school teaching next year and this would be a fabulous book for all ages to help learn and deepen understanding about how alike we really are.

  12. I’d love to read this. What an awesome message!!

  13. Lovely review Jackie. When you first posted the cover on Facebook, I noted it down on our ‘Books to buy’ list (even though I knew nothing about the book – just loved the cover!)
    My two kids are just starting to notice differences in people around them and in their peer group. Like all kids they have lots of questions and speak very openly and honestly (and sometimes loudly ;) ) about the differences they notice. This book would be a natural way to extend our ongoing discussions surrounding physical appearances/differences.

  14. Thank you to everyone who entered to win a copy of this very beautiful book.
    The lucky winner is Jodie.
    Jodie, please send an email to info@mylittlebookcase.com.au with your delivery address.
