Just Like You

By Jo Loring-Fisher

Beautifully and simply reinforces the message that all children are just like one another.

"I have one nose, two eyes and two ears.
My feet can take me a long, long way.
Sometimes I am very happy and at other times so sad.
But when I’m cuddled I feel cosy…."

One little girl is going on a journey, but wherever she is in the world, she is just like you. This beautiful story, woven through with a surprise, is full of empathy, warmth – and hope.

Amayah's Diverse Books

"This simple, beautiful, moving story with its surprise final spread exudes warmth and empathy. Equally important though, it is infused with hope. Compelling images ensure that the feeling of togetherness is indisputable a the narrative takes us towards its final revelation. If you are looking for a powerful picture book to introduce the theme of refugees or displacement to young children, this is one I'd strongly recommend."
