(from the publisher) Agnes has blue eyes. Kit's eyes are brown. But . . . they both close their eyes when they go to sleep. The close-up and lively illustrations of kids and all their cute bits--eyes, hair, skin, noses, legs--will invite readers to tell what's unique about themselves. And at the same time, children will see that there's so much they have in common, too.

|Craft ideas: |
Draw a picture of yourself and of one of your parents or siblings, and describe how you are the same and how you are different.
Make a paper chain, and on each link describe something about you.
*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions.
You can use them, but you don’t have to use them.
You can expand upon them, or add your own twist.
Remember, though, that the focus of your time should
not be on the development and execution of a craft;
the focus should be on the read-aloud and the
enjoyment of the book!
