WHAT EDUCATORS' ARE SAYING ABOUT 'LOOK ALIKES?!'...

"Look Alikes is a wonderful way to teach children the delightful differences between humans and the wildlife that share our planet. Through rhyme, they are able to appreciate the beauty and uniqueness that exists with every species. It is a fantastic way to introduce children to the early stages of comparison, a common curriculum element taught in Australian schools."

Adrienne T. O'Connell, B.A. / Grad. Dip. Ed / Taught children from indigenous classrooms in the outback to multicultural classrooms in the city.

"Toddlers love rhyming books and they love a giggle! This clever rhyming book with a surprise at each page turning will produce lots of giggles, as well as a reminder that we are all different and yet, intrinsically, the same. The invitation to 'Look in the mirror' gives every reader their own unique image to end the story. There is potential for extending the story with mask making and role play."

Maureen O'Shea, Young People's Services Librarian. / Noosa Library Service

Review Rating: 5 Stars - Congratulations on your 5-star review! readersfavorite.com

"There's nothing like rhyming verse and colorful illustrations to attract a young reader's attention. And the topic of differences and similarities is something very appropriate for young readers. Children are always comparing, looking for what's the same between people, between animals, and what's different. So, comparing oneself to a giraffe means comparing the size and color of the neck: a giraffe's neck is very long and dotted with spots whereas a young child's neck is short and one color: an alligator's smile is much different to a child's; an elephant's nose is definitely longer than a child's. Differences and similarities are what define living creatures. But the more different we all are, the more we are the same. We live, breathe; we have eyes, ears, nose and mouth, even though they may look different, be different colors, and be positioned in a different way. We are what we are and we need to recognize our differences in a way that honors them.

J.R. Poulter's picture book story, Look Alikes, is a fun story, told in rhyme and beautifully illustrated by Barb Dragony. The differences discussed initially present the human child in comparison with an animal in the wild. But the end of the book compares human children through color of skin, whether or not they wear glasses and things that may look different. While the fun-filled rhymes help to intensify the young reader's skills in observation, the importance of this lesson is that children learn to accept and rejoice in all our differences. Very powerful message. Well presented."

What did I do to help produce 'LOOK ALIKES?!'...

Some things were: design every page to fit the square shape of the final story (a lot of stories arrive on my desk the wrong size or shape for many different reasons), move images around, add text, work on the flow of the book like - how to engineer page turns, how much text goes where, how much image goes where, what's the best way to tell this story, are the characters facing an appropriate direction to move us through the story, oh plus the intricacies of publishing the actual book!

 

I was also privileged to take Barb's style and images to create over 8 totally new pages. I love working with illustrators styles and problem solving new pages. Some of the pages I created are below.

I also get to create products using the images and style of the story. I love the idea of creating a reader experience rather than just saying 'here's my book, buy it!' It's about snuggling down beneath blankets, sipping on warm drinks and escaping into a world of colourful pages and imagination.
