I am Just Like You
This cheerful, positive story tells us of a little girl named Emily who appears to be different. But is she? Or, is Emily just like you?
The story encourages preschool and primary aged children to see others in a different light. Through easy to understand examples of activities that many of us participate in, children can discover they are much the same regardless of their abilities. Meant for reading aloud by parents and educators of young children, this book promotes discussions of acceptance, kindness, and understanding of those who may appear different from ourselves.
Kelly Scrivener has been a CanTRA certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor for over 15 years. Through horse therapy programs, Kelly has worked with children, teens and adults with a variety of disabilities and learning challenges. Volunteering in her sons’ elementary school, Kelly witnessed many interactions between children and their classmates with special needs. This inspired her to write her first book for children. Kelly and her husband Glen have two wonderful boys and reside in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
