We Are All Different
Illustrated by Asa GillandAges 6-8
We Are All Different celebrates the fact that all of us are individuals. It looks at the autistic spectrum, differences in cultures, types of family, interests, race, ability and sexuality, and challenges stereotypes. It reinforces that everyone has something to offer, that diversity enriches our lives, and it also considers what all human beings have in common – that there is more that unites us than divides us.
This picture book tackles the subject with warmth and humour, without being didactic or sanctimonious, including speech bubbles and quotes from real children and famous people. The illustrations by Swedish illustrator Åsa Gilland are full of character and charm. We Are All Different is created in conjunction with young inclusion ambassadors through the Inclusive Minds organization.
