What Makes Us Unique?

Our First Talk About Diversity

by Jillian Roberts, illustrated by Cindy Revell

tagged: special needs, prejudice & racism, diversity & multicultural
Description

Our conversations with children about cultural, religious and physical differences are more important than ever, and they need to start at an early age, but we know 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.
