Author(s): Robie H. Harris
"New York Times "best-selling author Robie H. Harris helps preschoolers understand what makes us who we are from our height to our hair, from the shade of our skin to our eyesight. 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."
This title continues Harris and Westcott s Let s Talk about You and Me series of books, which makes abstract concepts accessible to young readers and their adults. Their newest follows an interracial family through an amusement park where better to find a kaleidoscope of humans? Booklist"
