One of these is not like that other--and that's great! This gently subversive picture book points out-- and celebrates!-- the differences between subjects. Barney Saltzberg's hilarious and delightfully direct text and simple illustrations introduce children to the concept and splendor of inclusiveness, through recognizing who or what's different on each spread and celebrating the unity as it is.

This book is age appropriate for very young readers that can be used for kindergarten and below. This book walks through multiple scenarios of unique groups of four where one does not match but all are able to work harmoniously. This book can be used to teach inclusion. ( )
