The Only Way Is Badger is a great book to show children how we can sometimes make mistakes and that is OK if we learn from them. The story follows badger who wants all the forest animals to be more badger and he lets the ones that can't be like a badger go because they're not like him.
The children's responses:
' We are all different and beautiful.'
'God didn't want us all to be the same. He likes us being different.'
' It makes me happy when I play with someone who likes playing with different things and games.'
A touching and beautiful picture book about being true to yourself and not letting anyone hold you back. This is the perfect story for children everywhere to remind them to be themselves no matter what the world tells you.
' We are good at different things...if we practise something we get good at it.'
I like making cars out of the mobilo. My cars have lots of wheels. I'm going to make fast cars when I grow up,'
'My brother likes dancing.'
What If We Were All The Same!
What If We Were All The Same! embraces all of our beautiful differences. Aimed to help children understand there are many great reasons for being friends with those who are different than they are. Whether they have red hair or brown hair, green eyes or blue eyes, long legs or short legs, light skin or dark skin, glasses, uses a wheelchair or anything else, it's absolutely OKAY! Our differences are what makes us unique, and if we genuinely think about it, would you want to be the same as someone else. We can be friends with everyone!
'I like having lots of friends. My friends are a bit like me but a bit like themselves too.'
' It's a wrong choice to not be someone's friend because they don't have the same colour hair and skin.'
