Celebrating our beautiful diversity.
We are all different from each other and special in so many ways. Our skin colour, the language we speak at home, our beliefs, the things we like to do or eat, what kind of family we have, our favourite toys, games and pastimes are just a few ways we can be different from each other.
All are precious and special and should be celebrated and respected.
Talk about the families you see in the book below.
What do you notice is the same about all of them?
What is different?
Loving people for their differences -

How do you look after your friends or family when they are trying something new?
Listen to the story of the Little Red Hen (above).
Think about how fair things were in the story.
Is it important for people to be treated fairly? Why?
