"Be the Difference has everything that we would like to instil in our children. It includes 40 ideas that range from starting a vegetable garden to gender equality. The book is written in a way that our children can understand the ideas as the illustrations match them perfectly. We can tell that our little ones get excited learning about all of the positive differences they can make in this world.
Our children’s favourite page in the book is a beautiful bright illustration of a forest with the words “Everyone can make this world a beautiful and better place”. We sit together and talk about all the things we can do together to make the world a better place!"
