11 Books About Why Its OK to be Different
Growing up, feeling like you're different and don't fit in can be troubling for children. But, by reading books starring characters that are just like them or also don't follow the expectations of those around them can help start conversations with your children and promote a positive outlook on what it means to be different. We have picked out these fun and moving books that will reassure children and remind them that it's our differences that make us unique, special and loved by others, and that diversity is a good thing. Our friends at Action for Children have also explained the value in reading for children who feel like they are different. Carol Iddon, Managing Director of Operations at Action for Children said, 'Action for Children promotes equality, diversity and inclusion in the support we provide to children, young people and families across the UK. Books that explore the theme of 'being different' are important mechanisms for children to learn about other backgrounds, cultures and faiths as well as helping them to have the confidence to be comfortable with themselves and celebrate their individuality.
