Welcome to our blog.

This is our new Mother-Son blog. I am Donna, (Mom), and Lucas is my 13 year old 7th grader. We both love to read and decided to create this blog to write about the books we enjoy. Lucas is very interested in science cannot wait to share his insights about the books he's reading and 7th grade.

Just like you by 
Robert Kroupa
illustrated by Hannah E. Harrison
given by publisher for review
reviewed by Mom and Lucas

Just like you is a tale about tolerance. Two friends who are different than everyone else. They are laughed at by an intolerant community.  When push comes to shove and danger is abound, it is the two friends Boris and Harry who come to everyone's rescue.  Boris is a lame spider who only has use of 7 of his legs and Harry is a deaf field mouse.  They live in  Piney Forest.  
The book is told in rhyme form, making it easier to read.
The spectacular pictures are created by Hannah E. Harrison.  
We received a pdf form of this book.  We liked it so much we ordered the actual book for Christmas, one copy for ourselves and several for family members.

Please visit the just like you foundation to learn more about tolerance and acceptance.
 There is a wonderful youtube trailer for the book.

What a wonderful book.  A wonderful story to teach our children.  Tolerance and Acceptance, what could be more beautiful?
