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.
