A Unique & Different Approach To Child Bullying: “Other Kids Are Kids Almost Just Like You”


I was so pleased to see this review of “Other Kids Are Kids Almost Just Like You” yesterday! 🙂

Other Kids Are Kids Almost Just Like You” by Christina Engela celebrates the concept of diversity and how precious every child is.

This book is about intolerance, diversity, and bullying and encourages readers to accept everyone, irrespective of their differences based on gender, race, and color. The book also emphasizes being compassionate to everyone, regardless of their color, status, and gender.

Bullying and intolerance are relevant topics in today’s times and this book is good for read-aloud sessions in classrooms to help children be more tolerant and compassionate towards others. The illustrations lend clarity to the concept and help readers connect with the author’s words.

The author’s approach to the subject is unique and different, and she makes the book appealing to children with the help of colorful illustrations. It is a good book to teach children to be kind and compassionate. 5 stars” – Mamta Madhavan for Readers’ Favorite, Oct 17, 2019

Sometimes The Best Way To Find Yourself, Is To Look Elsewhere


How does a normal, average guy get to grips with finding out the girl he’s been dating, used to be a guy…too?

I’m sure there’ve been reams written about this question – from all sorts of angles: his… hers… ‘society’s’… the religious and so-called ‘moral’ viewpoint – the indefensable ‘gay panic defense‘ – and also more typically, a plethora of ‘opinions’ about transgender people from an overwhelmingly ignorant, ill-informed cisgender peanut gallery.

Trouble is, when it comes down to it – nobody knows more about what it’s like to be a transgender person dealing with transgender issues and obstacles – or someone dating them, than the people dealing with it themselves. Unfortunately,this limits the capacity of those who know and experience these issues, to convey them effectively to others. More
