Just The Way We Are by Jessica Shirvington and Claire Robertson

As a teacher I see lots of different families. In our society today, we are a lot more accepting of the different kinds of families, such as same sexed couples, adoption of children from different nationalities etc.

'Just the way we are' is about different families and how each one is special and perfect to that particular family.

I think sometimes we perceive that children are "ok", but in actual fact, it is really hard for them to express themselves. Reading about situations that are familiar to them, immensely helps to bring clarity and acceptance. Think about how values are taught. If we wanted to teach children about sharing, we'd find a book about sharing.

It is very rare to find one that will help with children's social and emotional needs. I think Just the way we are, is a very cool way of showing to many children that everyone not only looks different, but their families can be very different too.

If you also want to teach and expose your children to diversity, then this is great beginning.
