Some People Do has a wonderful message and great illustrations. I think educators and parents could use this text as a powerful conversation starter about diversity, differences, and respect. Unfortunately, educators should also be mindful of their audience. Some schools and families may not be ready for such a celebration of diversity. in the primary grades. Personally, I would love a finished copy on my professional bookshelf. Thanks Boutique of Quality Books Publishing and NetGalley for the ARC of this title.
This beautifully illustrated children's educational book is perfect for young children, to help them understand and accept difference. It will help teachers and parents alike to explain this essential concept to very young children. A great find!
This book is about acceptance and understanding. Understanding that people are different. We all have different beliefs, likes and dislikes. Some people are rich, some are poor.Some people are trans or gay and even though that may be different than you it’s okay. It shows kids how you can be different from someone and still be kind.
This book is the perfect addition to any family or classroom library for those who want to help kids celebrate the many ways we, as human beings, are different. The illustrations are colorful and engaging and the rhyming, sing-song nature of the writing will draw kids right in. There are many homeschooling parents looking for a way to introduce diversity to their kids, and this book would be the perfect way to do so. It would work for young children in early elementary school, but would be just as appropriate (with some more follow up conversation) for a much older child as well. It is wonderful to see a book with such a positive message being created. I will definitely be buying a printed copy for myself and recommending it far and wide!
This book has nice illustrations and a message that is important for kids to understand. As a homeschool mom, I believe it’s important to teach my children that there are many people that make up our world and that they need to be able to show respect to everyone everywhere. The diversity covered in this book help facilitate discussions with my children and will help them establish their specific worldview while also being respectful of all people.
This picture book sets out on a mission to help parents educate their children about diversity and I feel that it has successfully achieved what it intended to do. I have never ever seen such beautiful illustrations on a picture book before. It was rich, colorful, vibrant and eye-popping. If it could appeal to a 22-year-old adult like me, I'm pretty sure that the kids of today would find it to be fascinating. From sexualities to the socio-economic status, this book covers a wide range of differences that exist between one another. Through beautiful sketches and crisp wordings, it conveys a very deep message to the readers that each and every person is different and that there is absolutely nothing wrong in it.
Simple yet clear and impactful book about the differences in people, different bodies, different believes, different life style,.... it all has its place and it can all be, This is described in simple words and illustrations. And this simplicity is what makes sure it is clear and to the point.
A powerful, concise, emotional, lovely nonfiction text for early readers about appreciating and valuing the differences that color our world.
What a wonderful story! It covers everyone on the planet and then some as it encourages acceptance of all of our differences. We are all more alike than different and need to get along as we all live on this plane Earth. Diversity makes things interesting! We'd be bored to death is everyone was totally alike. Nice story for all ages! Love the illustrations; I can't wait to see it in book form!
Some People Do by Frank Lowe is a perfect book for children and adults alike! Lowe presents our vast array of differences in a simple, amazing way that reminds us all, it's okay to not do everything the same way. I can't wait to share this with my own children and my classroom. It will be perfect as we learn about identity.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. Thank you NetGalley. This book is perfect for young children to start to learn and appreciate diversity in general. Maybe schools should consider having a book such as this in their curriculum.
All people are special, all people are unique. This is the central message of this vibrant children's book. The illustrations themselves are so bright and colorful that they appeal to me right away. The story itself is full of rhyme and repetition, emphasizing, "You may not know them, they may not be you, but some people are, and some people do." This book covers issues of diversity not often seen in children's books such as economic class, sexuality, gender-identification, religion, orphans, illness, and learning disabilities. If I were to be super nit-picky and must find one fault with this book, it would be the line, "All peeps like toys". I didn't care for the slang term. But that's just my preference. That's the only complaint I could find with this otherwise beautiful book.
