Explore how kids around the world live and the common needs that unite them
Children around the world live different lives from one another—different cultures, different geographic and socio-economic realities, differing access to health and education. Despite these differences, they all share common needs: the need to feel loved and protected, the need to have a place to live, the need to learn, to eat, to play, to share, and to dream for the future.
Grounded in careful and extensive research, this book by best-selling author Susan Hughes introduces readers to kids from around the world and the lives they lead. The child-centered narrative and playful illustrations explore how education, family, free time, and other aspects of daily life look different depending on who you are and where you live.
Perfect for fostering a global worldview, Same Here! encourages kids to draw connections to their own lives while learning about the experiences of others.

Same Here! is a delightful and authentic book about how people are the same yet different. We all need to communicate, feel loved and protected, have shelter, learn, eat, help, play, and dream. These are fundamental to all our lives but they might look different depending on who you are and where you live! This book does a great job of exposing young children to different cultures and expressing the importance of diversity. I love that the characters throughout are children sharing from their young point of view which is more powerful for young readers.
I can definitely see myself incorporating this book into a diversity lesson at the beginning of the year with my students. My school has a very diverse population and this book would be a great way for my students and their families to share their cultures and feel seen at school. Thank you NetGalley and OwlKids Books for the advanced copy. All opinions are my own.
