Sometimes it's Hard to be Me
A Child's Struggle with Change
by Trish Hammond

Today is going to be a lopsided day…

Do you wear special pajamas on weekends? Does your breakfast food start with the same letter as the day of the week? Does it bother you to look at crooked pictures, work with someone unfamiliar, learn in a new space, or have your day turn out differently than you planned? What if a book is placed out of order, or someone else uses your spot? For most of us, changes in routine are easy. But for others, the day can stretch out like chewed up bubble gum…

The simple text and humour in Sometimes it’s Hard to be Me teaches us that it’s okay to be different. Differences are what set us apart from others and make us unique.
