Overview

Learn to be confident in who you are while respecting the uniqueness of others. By interacting with children of various differences in background, ethnicity, ability, and needs, MVP Kids learn that differences aren't scary and finding common ground helps build strong friendships. Helpful Teaching Tips guide parents and educators in appropriate ways to speak about differences, how to navigate having a child with visible differences or befriending a person who is different, and how to manage potentially embarrassing moments when children call out differences they see in their community.

This book features a range of children, including children with Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and cochlear implants. Themes of skin color, adoption, and other family situations help children see that differences make their community exciting. The central theme of "We're more alike than different" helps build bridges for strong friendships. This book showcases diversity in positive ways with characters that span various cultures, ethnicities, family situations, physical challenges and more. Readers of all backgrounds will see themselves in these pages while learning to value the diversity within their own community and being exposed to differences from around the world.
