What Makes Us Unique?: Our First Talk About Diversity

(4) PS Just Enough series. Illustrated by Cindy Revell. Explaining the ways in which people can be different and fostering respect for these differences, this book--now in a paperback edition--describes how diversity can include outside variances (such as eye color, shape, and physical ability), personality characteristics (such as being gregarious versus introverted), and cultural differences. Child-friendly art, appropriately reflecting the "rainbow" of human differences, accompanies the purposeful, well-intentioned text. A final page addresses sexual orientation, racism, and prejudice in a bit more detail.
