What is this picture book about?
When Polar Bear wanders out onto the ice to play, she spots a rather strange looking bear. Patchy and blotchy, and shivering cold, this bear looks oh so lost among the freezing ice!
She is the same size as little Polar Bear, furry like Polar Bear, and yet she’s also completely different.
Well, then, thinks Polar Bear, what a perfect recipe for fun and friendship – and so begins their incredibly cute adventure!
From the author, Disha Bose O’Shea: why do we need a kids’ book about equality?
Have you ever noticed how young children will happily play with just about anyone? How they can form friendships easily, without judgement or prejudice? It’s beautiful to watch, isn’t it?
At some point in their development, though, many children form views that certain people should be treated differently; that their skin colour, their gender, or the way they speak or act, somehow makes them awkward or different in a negative way.
Just Like Me is the story that helps little ones celebrate their differences, value their unique traits, and champion equality for all.
