Book Blurb: 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.
REVIEW: I first became acquainted with this writing team as we read this for book club. The story became more heart-rendering as we heard Debbie’s sister speak to our group. It was powerful and moving as she put together a moving slide show that had pictures of her sister, Ron and shared what she knew about Denver Moore. She too was changed by her sister and brother-in-law’s work.
In the forward Ron Hall writes a note to parents. He shares how children would seek Denver out to ask him questions when they traveled across America trying to help people through sharing their story.
Ron says Denver was so moved by the kids they met and how they encouraged him, he said to Ron, “We gots to write a book these little children can read!” …“Tell them nobody can help everybody but everybody can help somebody.” I’m thrilled they have this book available for children; even more excited about the movie they’ve made based on the book. This book is a must read. The movie looks like one to watch.The release date of the movie is Sept 2017. The suggested age group is 4-8 years old.
