Book Description

ALL NEW KINDLE VERSION
Gold Award Winner/ MCA Best Picture Book

Cougar Cub Tales: I’m Just Like You is about a cougar cub brother and sister who, one day, encounter a creature very unlike themselves. They have ungrounded apprehension about whether or not the blind bobcat is “a REAL cougar cub”.
By the end of the tale, they realize that, despite their differences, they really ARE the same where it counts. They learn to overlook their physical differences as they embrace their new friend. It is a timeless story that deals with the everyday issue of intolerance, especially regarding physical difference and disability. It is written in a wonderful nonsensical rhyme, and the eighteen watercolors are an exquisite representation of this charming tale.
40 Pages/ Full Color Illustrations

5.0 out of 5 stars very good picture book for children, June 22, 2011 By A. K. Bryant "BookWorm" (Little Rock) This review is from: Cougar Cub Tales: I'm Just Like You (Kindle Edition) A nice short story with good illustrations to read to children. Teaches kids to look for things in common rather than differences. Reminds me of Dr. Suess books. I received it as a free download but regular price is only 99 cents. --Amazon Book reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars Purrrrfect, September 13, 2011 By Stacy (Washington State) This review is from: Cougar Cub Tales: I'm Just Like You (Hardcover) We discovered Sharon Cramer yesterday at our local Fair. She is an amazingly gentle soul who has a genuine love for children and the stories she creates for them. I bought both Lost and Alone and I'm Just Like You. Both are fabulously illustrated and written. I love how Sharon weaves real life situations into a fun story that captures my son's attention and causes him to think and relate to his own life. I highly recommend both books!! --Amazon Book Reviews

I would recommend this book to second grade teachers and guidance counselors. what a wonderful way to let students know that being different is okay and that acceptance of others who are different is an admirable thing to do! --Learning Magazine Teacher's Choice Awards Evaluation

I would recommend this book to kindergarten through second grade teachers as a supplement to the curriculum when they study individuals and families. The book was great and i would recommend it to other teachers. Sometimes it is hard to talk about citizenship and help the students realize and relate to realistic situations. The book brought a realistic situation to life and in a kid friendly way. --Learning Magazine Teacher's Choice Awards Evaluation

1.0 out of 5 stars Well-intentioned, but not up to par January 31, 2012
By CJG
Format:Kindle Edition
The rhyme scheme and illustrations were awkward. The story didn't really make sense, and the message was forced. Overall, my 3-yr-old and I didn't enjoy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bright Pictures, gentle rhyme June 24, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bright pictures and rhyming text in this children's picture book formatted for the kindle. Has a good message about accepting differences and using one's talents to help others. I read it on the Kindle for PC with two columns and it displayed well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, with Strange formatting April 10, 2012
By Kent
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Seeing as the book is one of the top selling children's ebooks, I got this for the kindle fire to entertain the little ones. The formatting is strange - the text generally falls on a different page from the pictures, which I feel look very quickly done. The kids were bored with it very quickly - while its intentions are good, the rhyme scheme felt forced. Also, there should NEVER be grammatical errors in a children's book. Despite being a story about acceptance, it was hard for me to accept this one. 2/5

5.0 out of 5 stars A sweet little story with a lesson March 29, 2013
By Sunny
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The cubs are just alike and when they meet somebody who looks very different, they aren't sure that they want to be friends. This story gives an example of how somebody else can look different and still be the same in many ways

1.0 out of 5 stars Too many hyphenated December 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
No matter what font we used or which way we held the kindle, many words were split between lines & had hyphens so were difficult for a beginner reader. Cute story though.

More About the Author

Sharon Cramer is an aspiring time-traveler, alien princess, and master painter of halloween faces. In the meantime, she writes from a dank, dark cave, somewhere in Washington State. She's just released the first in a sci-Fi fantasy series called THE CERULEAN STAR, and has a breakthrough novel, beloved by an amazingly loyal following, called THE EXECUTION. Movie coming soon! (Check out Book Video!)

When not planning historical ruin and perfectly crushed hearts, Sharon can be found wandering somewhere in obscure Eastern Washington, talking to herself. Driven by sleeplessness and a seemingly endless draw to the keyboard (and the occasional extra strong "special" coffee) she is inspired by unorthodox friends and extreme weather. Mother to three sons, a nerd horse, a bad cat, and eleven fish (who all have names) she is married to a man who surely has won the Nobel Prize for Extreme Tolerance.
