POW! Kids Books is proud to present the December 2022 release of

Just. Like. You.

Written by Meredith Steiner

Illustrated by Avneet Sandhu

Just. Like. You. is a rhyming story in celebration of diversity that introduces readers to all the different members of a classroom and what makes each of them uniquely who they are.

Lu speaks with her hands. Will writes down their thoughts. Ava reads along the page; her fingers glide on dots. Bella’s body’s narrow. Julian’s is round. Elijah’s legs are shortish, so his dress drags on the ground. 

Written in a melodic, read-aloud ready rhyme, Just. Like. You. is a joyful celebration of individuality and diversity. Follow a class of students throughout the school day from morning to night and discover what makes each of them unique; from different talents, abilities, and body sizes, to ethnicities, religions, gender expressions and more, there are so many things to love about being you. Avneet Sandhu’s endearing, playful portrait illustrations bring this magnificent classroom to life.

A perfect back-to-school gift, or anytime-gift, Just. Like. You. is a burst of delight.


Meredith Steiner is an activist and advocate, committed to a more just, more joyful world. She loves playing board games that go on too long, making miniature books, and singing show tunes (when she's sure no one is around). She is a children’s librarian and lives in San Francisco with her two sons.
