This book is totally gorgeous! I had earlier received the PDF copy of this book for my review but am not able to open it using the BlueFire software on my iPad, hence I tried requesting for the actual book from Free Spirit Publishing and I'm so happy they send the book to me! So here goes my review for the "I’m Like You, You’re Like Me" book:

Title: I’m Like You, You’re Like Me, A Book About Understanding and Appreciating Each Other
Author: Cindy Gainer and illustrated by Miki Sakamoto

ISBN-13/-10:  978-1575423838 / 1575423839

Description from the product page:
"“It’s fun to find ways I’m like you and you’re like me. It’s fun to find ways we’re different.”

In this colorful, inviting early childhood book, kids from preschool to lower elementary learn about diversity in terms they can understand: hair that’s straight or curly, families with many people or few, bodies that are big or small. With its wide-ranging examples and fun, highly detailed art, I’m Like You, You’re Like Me helps kids appreciate the ways they are alike and affirm their individual differences—all while building self-confidence. Lively new art breathes fresh life into this classic introduction to diversity and self-esteem for children. A two-page adult section in the back provides tips and activities for parents and caregivers to reinforce the themes and lessons of the book."

'Beautiful, cute and so fun!' is all I can think of as I flipped through this book! I was so anxious to look at each of the pages in the book as the pictures included in this book is just gorgeous and really really cute! 

This book teaches us to appreciate the uniqueness and similarity between us and other people and that we should respect each other.

I also love the top and bottom rows on each page which depicts different things such as toys, vehicles, things you need for baking, and so on. Those cute little objects itself can be used to teach my child as well!

You can get this book from Free Spirit Publishing website, Amazon and many more.
