We Are All Alike . . . We Are All Different ~ Picture Book & KID KANDY
We Are All Alike . . . We Are All Different
Written and illustrated by the Cheltenham Elementary School Kindergartners
Photographs by Laura Dwight
(Scholastic, Inc., 1991)
We Are All Alike . . . We Are All Different is a wonderful book that explores the sameness and differentness of all of us.
Written by kindergartners (!), this book allows each person to be both unique and the same. The artwork and simple text are perfect for readers. The added photographs include a wide variety of diverse individuals. You will be pleased to see many ethnic groups and family combinations in We Are All Alike . . . We Are All Different.
And it's okay.
Crayon Resist Painting
Many of the illustrations were made by painting over crayon drawings with watercolor paints.
1. Draw pictures of your family members with crayons.
2. Use watercolors to paint the figures and background.
3. Dry and display the paintings.
4. Discuss your family. How are you alike? How are you different?
Foster the ability of your child to allow others to be different and okay at the same time. We are all different! We are all alike!
