Just Like You by Robert Kroupa
The theme of this book is tolerance and acceptance. The author did a wonderful job getting this message across to the reader. It is a very well developed book. The illustrations are just as well done as the story. This is one message that we need to really get across to children. Accept differences in others especially when it is something they have no control over. This would be a good book for a child to find in his/her Christmas stocking.
The spectacular images found in Just Like You were designed by first-time illustrator, Hannah E. Harrison. Hannah's beautiful illustrations help children understand the message of the story and the added animated touches turn the characters into charming and loveable friends.
