Read this book and prepare to be amazed at what you see in the mirror the next time you take a look! 


Little Jimmy Says, "Same Is Lame" is a fun book to teach kids that being different isn't a bad thing - that our differences are actually cool. This was a quick read that had lots of great activity pages throughout to keep young readers engaged in the book and the topic. In today's society, where expectations on how to look, dress, act, etc. are learned at a ridiculously young age, this book takes the topic head on. It tries to teach children that being different in any way is cool - not lame. Not only is it cool to be different - other kids are cool for being different in their own ways too. The book touches on deep topics like self esteem, bullying, and societal norms in a way that kids will understand and even enjoy learning about. It's sad that our culture has come to this point - where young children have to be taught that it's alright to be different from others - whether it's skin color, weight, height, wearing glasses, etc., that these characteristics make some people unique and special - that they are nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed about. The author and illustrator make this a great learning tool by integrating fun activities along with the narrative and the entire book is full of bright and colorful illustrations. I definitely recommend this book to parents of children who are beginning school or are in lower elementary grades. Also, this would be a fantastic book for teachers and counselors to use in order to talk about bullying and being different.
