Same here! : the differences we share

Image of item
"Children around the world have vastly different lives - different cultures, different geography, socio-economic realities, differing access to health and education. They speak different languages and eat different foods. But despite these differences, they all share common needs: the need to communication, to feel loved and protected, the need to have a place to live, the need to learn, to eat, to play, and to dream for the future. Using careful and extensive research, Susan Hughes, the author of the best-selling OFF TO CLASS, presents readers with a variety of characters from around the world who share how they live their lives. Each section starts with a close-up of a child talking about their experiences, and then moves on to two additional spreads exploring the experiences of children from other parts of the world. Her hope: that young readers will connects with these characters and join with them in saying "Same here!" Our world has seen many big changes recently--changes that have affected each one of us, old and young, in every country around the world. Difficult changes such as climate warming, food insecurity, pandemics, and other health concerns. These are--and continue to be--difficult challenges. However, by challenging us, they can also inspire us. The children shown in this book are strong evidence that despite our many and important differences, we are indeed citizens of a global village who share needs and goals. And we have a responsibility and the ability to join together to create positive change for all. To not only cope with, but find solutions to, global problems.
