Same Kind of Different As Me book
This book actually was close to home.
We keep a homeless bag in our van of can goods and snacks that we can hand out to homeless people we see. There are so many. Sometimes they are asking for more than just food but we try to help feed them. We almost always tell them to have a blessed day. God fed the masses on bread and fish. I also feel that this is teaching my kids that some people don't have the same things that they do. I believe it helps with compassion and love.
I will brag on 1 of my kids, they tend to find people that look down or have possibly had a bad day. She then pays for their food or drink. She doesn't wait for a thank you just tells the order taker to tell them to have a good day. My kids may not have everything they want but they do know that there are people out there that don't even have that.
This book is about a little "cotton picker". His family works for another family. The father of the cotton farm told him that if he worked really hard he could earn a brand new bike. He was so excited when he earned that bike. One day he saw a train and wondered where the train went. He then hopped on. When arriving at his destination, he did not have a job, money or a place to live. He became quite jaded as to life. But along came a wonderful lady. At one point he thought she might be an angel. She introduced him to God. She taught him to read.
One part of the story shows how things had changed for him.
" Miss. Debbie was different from anybody I had ever met. But I finally figured out that she was the same kind of different as me."
