About the Book
Lilting rhymes show children that everyone is different on the outside, but in all the ways that matter, we are the same. Known for her collaborative projects with children, Chris looks at eyes, ears, hair, feelings and thoughts. Using simple direct language, she shows that while they appear different, they provide us the same experiences. Text in English and Spanish is amplified by call out words in major languages, and illustrations created by students celebrate the beauty of individual faces in the rich landscape of diversity. The Same Heart provides children with respect for every individual’s uniqueness and the importance of finding connection.
