Just Like Me!
As young children explore the world around them, they often classify people and objects according to how similar or different they are to one another. Most of the time, young children classify these similarities and differences in relation to themselves. The Just Like Me series allow children to not only meet characters who may have similarities to themselves, but also expose children to other ways that the same character can be different, whether that is in appearance, interests, or customs. By noting the common ground that children have with characters in stories as well as the differences, children become more accepting to others who may initially seem different, but who ultimately have the same universal needs of family, safety, and love.
