    6. Rhyming text demonstrates differences and similarities between people. I especially liked the diversity in terms of characters and the representation of various people.

    7. This lyrical fiction book discusses the topics of multiculturalism and harmony. The authors, J. Philip Miller and Sheppard M. Greene, incorporate a song within this book. The song discusses that no matter where a child may live, what they look like, or what they do, they all are linked together through the heart and "sing with the same voice". The book discusses several topics that make each individual unique. (ex. "I live in southern France; I'm from a Texas ranch.", "I've got one daddy; I've g [...]

The book not only includes pictures of children from different countries and of different nationalities but, it also includes pictures of children in wheelchairs who have handicaps or disabilities.

    9. Personal Reaction- I really like this book because it teaches kids about different parts of the world but also shows that everyone is similar. Children will love this book because its about kids from different places.Purposes:read aloud to kindergarten-enrichment and enjoyment due to the illustrations and facts that are worked into the story-also rhymes so it could possibly be viewed as simple poetryCurriculum: read aloud-discuss differences-talk about how everyone is different but everyone has [...]

    10. This book is perfect to introduce children to different cultures and people! I love how the book really plays on the bond we all have together as humans. A beautiful story! There was a voice that existed in this book, but it was more singsongy. Because of that, there was no real beginning, middle, and end to the story. It was more of a description of different cultures that is relatable for younger audiences. I think this could be a fun activity to do with elementary school aged children and to [...]

    11. This is a great book for young children. The pictures are colorful and bold and show many different ethnicity. The beginning of the book depicts different colors of eyes, hair, and skin then goes on to tell of many things that all cultures and backgrounds share. For example one of the pages reads, "I have sisters one two three. In my family there's just me. I've got one daddy. I've got two." The book is written in poetry verse so that it rhymes and has a stanza that is repeated "We all sing with [...]

    13. Personal Reaction: I loved this book. The idea behind the book, that everyone is equal, is portrayed perfectly in this book.

    14. Children are familiar with other culture, Children all over the world express their feelings in different ways. Children's skin, eyes, and hair are different because we all come from different parents and cultures. We sing with the same voice and we should live together as one big family. All children regardless of the culture want to be loved, cared for, read to, and they like to watch TV. Even though our colors are different, we are the same.Learning extension: Teacher and children sit on the [...]

The wonderful message this little gem bears is : I come from everywhere and my name is YOU!We all sing with the same voice,The same song,The same voice.We all sing with the same voice,And we all sing in harmony.We are all same indeed! Just read the following verses. Come on, I dare you! I dare you to read them.And when it's time for bed,I like my stories read,"Sweet dreams" and "Love you" said.My name is you.Do you, just like me, want someone to tell you "Sweet dreams" and "Love you"? If so, the [...]

    16. This book is precious to my heart! The fourth day of this school year was 9-11-2011: a day and year of teaching that I will never forget. That year, I closed my kindergarten class with this book EVERYDAY. I thought WE would ALL get tired of it afterwhile, but it somehow never got old. :) We would sing it everyday as we transitioned to/from our closing meeting. It connected and celebrated us all! A great read, a great songI highly recommend it!

    17. This shows different children acknowledging their differences, but noticing how they also have similarities and "sing with the same voice".I may read this aloud to students to encourage acceptance among them and their peers. There is also a video that turns it into a song, which could be fun for a class to learn.

    18. This is such a sweet and important book about being true to yourself and speaking/singing from the heart. An important lesson when introducing children to social justice and the differences and similarities between people.

    19. I really enjoyed reading this book because it teaches children about different parts of the world and how everyone is similar in a way. I like this story because it rhymes and the illustration and great. This would be a great book to read at the being of a school year.

    20. "We all sing the same voice, and we sing in harmony." This book is a great way to promote acceptance in each individual child. It has great illustrations and children will enjoy it from start to finish.

    21. This is a good one. My copy of this book came with a CD, so you can read it or sing it. All my kids really liked reading this and it has a cute message.

    22. Un libro muy tierno y lindo para que los más pequeños aprendan a conocer y respetar nuestras diferencias.
