New Children's Book Explores Diversity and Inspires Empathy
The New York Times Book Review states, "No One Else like You written by Siska Goeminne and illustrated by Merel Eyckerman, doesn't follow a character, but approaches diversity from a distance. Some people are happy and some people are sad. People believe all kinds of things and practice all forms of religion. Everyone is different. Those differences, however, are what ultimately unite us: We're all different, and that's what we all have in common. The illustrations do a nice job of conveying the great diversity of people in the world."
Siska Goeminne is a full-time author of numerous books for children and youth. She lives in Leuven, Belgium.
