Suggested starting points for engagement:
- At the end of the All Kinds of People book, there is a mirror for children to look at their own image, along with a page for children to record their own unique characteristics. Consider adapting this activity as a small group activity for use in a particular way for your group of children.
- Consider using the All Kinds of Feelings book as a starting point for a discussion with an individual or group of children about different types of feelings and how we express ourselves. Consider an open ended art activity where children create their representation of a feeling of their choice. Discuss differences and similarities and how we might feel similar things but it may look different to each of us.
- Consider making a book that represents the actual children in your group.
