Who We Are!

By Robie H. Harris
Illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott

New York Times best-selling author Robie H. Harris helps preschoolers understand what makes us who we are — from our height to our hair, from the shade of our skin to our eyesight.

Join Nellie, Gus, baby Jake, and their parents at Funland as they go on rides, watch performers, and play games along with many other children and grown-ups. As they enjoy their excursion, they — and young readers — notice that people are the same as one another in lots of ways, and different in lots of ways too. Accessible, humorous, family-filled illustrations; conversations between Gus and Nellie; and straightforward text come together to help children realize why it’s important to treat others the way they want to be treated and the way you want to be treated — whether a person is a lot like you or different from you, a good friend or someone you have just met or seen for the first time.

  • The fifth book in Robie Harris's Let's Talk About YOU and ME series, illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott.
  • Diversity in background, families, and physicality is explored while Gus and Nellie's family enjoys an amusement park.
  • The perfect book to increase kids' understanding and acceptance of people around them who are like them or not like them.
