I Don't Have Your Eyes by Carrie Kitze

This beautiful book celebrates the similarities that exist between parents and children who may not share physical characteristics. "I don't have your eyes...but I have your way of looking at things. I don't have your ears...but I have your way of hearing those in need." Carrie Kitze, the author, is an adoptive mom who reaches out to families through the adoption publishing company, EMK Press. A special guide for parents is available for download at http://www.emkpress.com

We Are All Alike...We Are All Different by the Cheltenham Elementary School Kindergarteners

Kindergarten children wrote this book to share with other children. Quite simply, it's marvelous. "We are all alike. We are all people," begins the first page, along with illustrations done by the children. Page two shows color photographs of children of different races. The text continues, "We are all different. We do not look the same. We have different color eyes. We have different color hair..." The page that talks about family features several photos including a picture of an Anglo mother with an Asian son.

We're Different, We're the Same: And We're All Wonderful! by Bobbi Jane Kates

Sesame Street neighbors look at the ways in which they are similar and different. "We're different. Our noses are different. We're the same. Our noses are the same. They breathe and sniff and sneeze and whiff." My four-year-old really enjoys this book. We spend a lot of time on each page, looking at all the different features of various characters.
