Same Kind of Different As Me (For Kids) by Ron Hall & Denver Moore

This remarkable story shows what can happen when we choose to help. Kids will discover that we can all make a difference—no matter how big or small we are and no matter how big or small the task.
Based on the New York Times bestseller Same Kind of Different As Me, which sold more than a million copies worldwide and inspired the major motion picture, this book tells the true story of Denver Moore and Ron Hall, who also created the delightful illustrations in this book.
Share the power of friendship and faith with your children. 

Same Kind of Different as Me (forKids) by Ron Hall & Denver Moore  is the story of Denver Moore's life.  The story has beautiful, simple pictures of Denver Moore's life and his story of growing up as a share cropper in the South during the great depression.  The book depicts the story of how Denver became a homeless man using child friendly language.  The story  also tells how he met Debbie and Ron Hall, and how his life changed when he felt loved by God.

Denver Moore wanted to have a picture book of his life to share with children.  He wanted the story to be simple and easy to understand.  I believe this book has lived up to his expectations.  The pictures do a great job showing poverty and homelessness in a realistic way for children.  I feel the book is a great springboard to having meaningful conversation with your children.  The story challenges children to look at someone's life that is not like theirs and maybe see how that person arrived there.  It also challenges them to help others who are different from themselves.
I feel this is a great book and I would recommend  it.  I believe it will open up wonderful conversations with your children and you will be glad that you shared Denver's story with them.
