Synopsis

Am I Really Different? by Evelien Van Dort, Gerda Westerink

If you are a ladybird with only one spot, you can't help feeling a bit different. But when you look more closely, you see that no two ladybird's patterns are the same. So are you REALLY different?

Reviews

'The story is prettily illustrated in soft pastels, and gently makes the point that everyone is unique and special; and that laughing at someone for being different is really rather silly. It would be particularly useful to read to any child who feels a bit 'different'

-- but since, as the story points out, we all feel 'different

.

.co.uk 'This gentle picture book with softly coloured illustrations has a realistic depiction of playground style bullying, an obvious moral and a happy ending which leaves the bullies feeling silly.

.wordpool.co.uk 'A very well-illustrated little book ... The story line will help parents to gently encourage young children to think and talk about how they see themselves and others. A positive story for parents to read with 5-7 year olds about self-acceptance; younger children will enjoy it too.
