Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Good for all ages

This is very good for teaching kids what life is like in different places. Some stories were upsetting or sad, but that is the way it is and kids deserve to know.

I would recommend this book to all ages!

I got this book for christmas when I was about six years old, now I am 20 and I still have this book at home, I read it all the time. It is what inspired me to want to travel and learn about people all around the world. I would also recommend the other Children Just Like Me book, as well as other books sponsered by UNICEF! This book will open your eyes to so many different lives and experiences.
