'We're The Same, We're Different, We All Belong'
In her own heartwarming, hilarious words, Marnie, a spunky multiracial kindergartener, explores the concept of diversity. She finds that differences (e.g. race, size, accent, learning styles, ways of moving around etc.) are only one part of a person's unique story.
Meet Marnie! She’s three and three-quarters feet tall, her skin is the color of Mama's banana bread, and she can do lots of cool styles with her hair. She also has the funniest jokes, and she’s extra brave on the monkey bars. Oh, and did she mention she wants to be a superhero when she grows up? There are so many things that make Marnie who she is—and she wants to know all of the things that make you who you are, too!
This engaging, interactive picture book asks readers a series of heartwarming, hilarious questions alongside a spunky main character, and gracefully illustrates that the best friendships can be made when we love what’s different (and the same) about each other.
