Do you want to raise a child that makes friends the world over, regardless of their differences? A child that knows it's our unique traits that make us so special? Well, then, this gorgeous book is just for you.
What is this picture book about?
When Polar Bear wanders out onto the ice to play, she spots a rather strange-looking bear. Patchy and blotchy, and shivering cold, this bear looks oh so lost among the freezing ice!
She is the same size as little Polar Bear, furry like Polar Bear, and yet she's also completely different.
Well, then, thinks Polar Bear, what a perfect recipe for fun and friendship - and so begins their incredibly cute adventure!
A precious little book about friendship and equality.
Recommended ages: for 0 - 4yrs old

An excerpt from the story
Mama! I made a new friend today and she's unlike me in every way.
I wanted to share my lunch with her, but it's not fish that she prefers!
Then I wanted to roll in the snow, but she said, "Hmm, it's cold - I don't know."
And when she growls, you will agree, she really doesn't sound at all like me. Can two bears so different be friends and play? Wait! Listen to what else she did today.
Mama, you should see how my new friend climbs trees. She has an extra toe to snap bamboos with ease.
And when we talked, we just couldn't stop, and she didn't care that I couldn't reach the treetop.
She's not like me but we're also the same. We can roll and growl, hunt and play games.
Mama, I made a friend with a good heart,
And, that mama, is my favourite part!
Have you ever noticed how young children will happily play with just about anyone? How they can form friendships easily, without judgment or prejudice? It's beautiful to watch, isn't it?
At some point in their development, though, many children form views that certain people should be treated differently; that their skin colour, their gender, or the way they speak or act, somehow makes them awkward or different in a negative way.
Just Like Me is the story that helps little ones celebrate their differences, value their unique traits, and champion equality for all.
The overwhelming majority of the world’s children’s books are produced in high-polluting factories, with non-recycled paper and petroleum-based ink, which is terrible for the environment. Here at Ethicool, we knew that wasn’t an option for us - we couldn’t very well contribute to the problem we were trying to solve. That’s why Ethicool books are printed on recycled paper, using soy-based, environmentally safe inks.
