Everybody can help somebody—even you!
"I used to spend a lotta time worryin' that I was different from other people . . .
But I found out everybody’s different—the same kind of different as me.”
Little Denver grew up very poor, and he didn’t get to go to school. As time passed, Denver decided to hop a train to the big city for a different life. But that life was difficult, and Denver spent many years as a homeless man. But God showed His love through two people who were very different from Denver.
Based on Same Kind of Different As Me, the emotional tale of Denver Moore’s life story, this unique children’s book includes Denver’s original art. Parents and children alike will be moved by this powerful story and will never forget the unexpected and life-changing things that can happen when we help somebody.
"Nobody can help everybody, but everybody can help somebody.”

One word.. Remarkable! I loved this book. I have not read the other by the same author but you better believe it is on my to be read list now!
Why I loved it....
The illustrations are unique and almost child like in design. The story begins with Denver's early years during the Great Depression. His family worked as share croppers in Louisiana. They lived in a shack without electric or water. The book states, "They were as poor as they could be.".
This book is the story of Denver, of his upbringing in a time of poorness and desolation and how he got to where he was.
This is a very touching story sharing with each of us, that though we may want to save the world and rescue everyone.. we can't. We each however can do something to help somebody.
Fantastic story for kids and adults alike!
