    Default Books about how people are different?

    Hi there!
    Can anyone recommend any children's books that show diversity of culture and appearance etc.

    I have 'All kinds of people' and 'All Kinds of Religion' but they're are a bit complex for early years in my opinion and my lot just arent interested in them.
    Can any of you recommend some others?

    I like 'Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes' by Mem Fox, illustrations by Helen Oxenbury.

    Tabby McTat (Julia Donaldson).

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tabby-McTat-.../dp/1407109278

    It has everything re. Diversity, yet it's a terrific book as well.

    The simplest and most accessible I know of is:

    (Todd Parr) It's Okay to be Different Little, Brown & Co.


    Also good for EY is:

    (Mary Hoffman & Ros Asquith) The Great Big Book of Families Frances Lincoln


    Do you have any specific areas/issues of diversity in mind, or just diversity in general?

    Oh all my children love this book, it makes them laugh. I think for young children it's brilliant.

    I have the oxfam books 'playtime' 'homes' etc.
    Great for showing different children around the world. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/1845...playtime+oxfam

    Also the Dorling Kindersley books ... children just like me and celebrations. Although the ones I have look a little dated. There might be a new version.

    Thank you so much everyone!
    Yes it's just diversity in general really.
    Got loads to work with now and all I put into amazon came up with other related topics so I'm spoiled for choice now lol.
    Thanks guys
