Who We Are!: All About Being the Same and Being Different

Join Nellie, Gus, baby Jake, and their parents at Funland as they go on rides, watch performers, and play games along with many other children and grown-ups. As they enjoy their excursion, they -- and young readers -- notice that people are the same as one another in lots of ways, and different in lots of ways too.

Accessible, humorous, family-filled illustrations; conversations between Gus and Nellie; and straightforward text come together to help children realize why it's important to treat others the way they want to be treated and the way you want to be treated -- whether a person is a lot like you or different from you, a good friend or someone you have just met or seen for the first time.

"The author provides an explanation of some of the causes of similarities and differences, such as genetics. Her concluding message is that no matter how different we may be, we all have feelings and that it is wrong to use differences put people down. Westcott's signature child-friendly cartoon illustrations support and expand the theme of the text. Crisp and clear, the images depict a variety of individuals -- children in wheelchairs, a woman in a hijab, a man wearing a turban, and a boy wearing a yarmulke -- and add charm and invite repeated examination. A valuable addition to most collections and particularly useful as a springboard to antibullying discussions." -- Grace Oliff, School Library Journal
