Same by Katrina Roe

Wombat Books, 2015. ISBN 9781925139266
(Age: All) Highly recommended. Same is a gorgeous picture book that introduces the theme that everyone has something the same despite their outward appearances. Ivy's Uncle Charlie comes for a visit but she isn't too sure about this new visitor. Ivy is scared as Uncle Charlie steers his wheelchair into the house. He is different to other adults but when Uncle Charlie does something exactly the same as her, Ivy sees how they are the same after all.
This is great story to read with all age groups, reminding them to see others (who might seem different to them) as the same. Highly recommended for readers aged 5+, this would also be a good story to use for the Child Protection Curriculum and the identifying of feelings.
