Review: I'm Just Like You (Cougar Cub Tales) by Sharon Cramer

Cougar Cub Tales: I’m Just Like You is the second book in the Mom's Choice Award Winning Series, COUGAR CUB TALES. I'm Just Like You is about a cougar cub brother and sister who, one day, encounter a creature very unlike themselves. They have ungrounded apprehension about whether or not the blind bobcat is “a REAL cougar cub”.
By the end of the tale, they realize that they really ARE the same, overlooking their physical differences as they embrace their new friend. It is a timeless story that deals with the everyday childhood issue of intolerance, especially regarding physical difference and disability. It is written in a wonderful nonsensical rhyme, and the eighteen watercolors are an exquisite representation of this charming tale.

This is a good book to read on learning to accept those that may look or act different than you. 

We have two cougar cubs who are orphaned and spend their days playing and having fun like cubs should. Then they met a bobcat who is very different than they are. We get to read the differences between the bobcat and the cougars and they learn that you can be friends with someone different.

The book is a kind of rhyming which is catchy. The only problem I had with this story was the pictures. They seemed to be too small on my kindle fire, I think the author could have made them a bit bigger so we could actually get a good look at the differences of both animals. This is a good book to read to the preschoolers on up.
