Cover of That's Like Me!

Thatís
Like
Me!

By Jill Lauren, M.A.
Foreword by Jerry Pinkney

Book Summary 

Jill Laurenís Thatís Like Me! helps children identify with people who have learning difficulties at an early age. Through her numerous examples, she demonstrates that learning difficulties can be conquered. Her book illustrates that once these difficulties are mastered, the options abound.

The common theme found in her work is diligence in and outside the classroom equals success in life. Her message is that a person is not bound by their limits but strengthened through their difficult journey to prosperity. Lauren carefully chooses a diversity of people to reside in her writings. They range from young children in grade school to adults in rewarding careers. At the end of Thatís Like Me! it gives the reader the opportunity to search a listing of web resources.  The conclusion of the book has a blank template so the reader can start his or her own story. Within this book everyone can find an uplifting profile to which they can relate.
