No Difference Between Us by Jayneen Sanders

Fri 16 March 2018

Jess is a girl and Ben is a boy. They're twins who like to do different things like play guitar and soccer, climb trees and play in the sandpit. They may have different dreams, but they feel the same emotions.

Written by primary school teacher, editor, publisher, author and mum of three, Jayneen Sanders, and illustrated by Amanda Gulliver, this story is a fun way to teach kids about gender equality, acceptance and respectful relationships.

To read along with the illustrations, buy your own copy of the book, published by Educate2Empower Publishingfrom their website.
