You and Me and Everybody Else
This charming picture book builds bridges between you and me and everybody else.
Our wishes, dreams, thoughts, and feelings are personal to us but all experienced by others. Guided by a friendly page-hopping cat, You and Me and Everybody Else tackles an adult topic in a sympathetic manner, encouraging empathy and self-reflection.
Depicting different situations from sleeping and dreaming, to playing and laughing, to occasional boredom, this book breaks down barriers and negates cultural differences. As readers turn the pages, the message builds strength: Ultimately, no matter what we look like, or where we come from, we can find links to ourselves in others.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"reminds children that feelings, as well as some physical impulses, are universal."
"An additional purchase, this makes valid points in a childlike way, and the simplicity is deceptive."
