Not perfect, but it's not bad, and my kid *loves* this book
Reviewed in the United States on April 8, 2018
One of the books my son (two years old) makes me read over and over. He adores this book, which is about how everyone is different and the same (ie, it talks about noses, eyes, skin, etc., showing how everyone is different with these things, but then shows how noses, eyes, skin, etc., are all the same as well). He loves to point to all the different people and body parts in the book and talk about them. For example, he'll point and ask about what the people are doing in a scene, or when the book is talking about eyes, he'll say "Eye!" and point to his eyes or mine.
The book is constructed a little flimsy considered how rough kids are with things. I'm not a huge fan of some of the content, but most of it is good. I leave some parts out when we read this out loud just because as a family, we're pretty sensitive to disability issues and this book tries and fails at that (including a person in a wheelchair in one of the crowd scenes doesn't matter when you're talking about how all bodies are the same because they can all dance ...). It's much better than most books at racial diversity. It doesn't address gender at all, just skips that completely.
If your kid isn't familiar with Sesame Street already, they're likely going to be a bit confused by the Sesame Street characters in the book. My kid doesn't watch Sesame Street regularly, but he was at least enough aware of it that he wasn't completely puzzled. It still took him reading it a few times to make the connection though.
