Jumper the Cloud Dog is a new picture book that deals with the subject of difference and inclusion. The main character, Jumper, is adopted by a family of dogs. None of them can guess what type of creature he is but they accept him exactly as he is. Jumper however, begins to notice he is different and this really bothers him. Knowing where he came from is important to his happiness. Check it out on Amazon.

Please check out the Adventures of Betty and Bo-Bob. I know you will like it. Deals with adoption, being a minority family, dealing with happiness, sadness, death, friendship, family and learning who you really are. Let me know what you think.

Tommy and the T-Tops: Helping Children Overcome Prejudice (Let's Talk)I wrote Tommy and the T-Tops in which a herd of dinosaurs adopts and eventually learns from refugees from another heard with different colors. The book has been a sleeper despite positive reviews, but addresses exactly these issues.

"Lost and Found" is about two mice in a school, one gray and one white. It is about friendship, diversity and tolerance.

Jeremiah the Barking Frog by Shawn Doremus

A picture book about a frog who barks like a dog. The other frogs in the bog think he ruins their croaking song by barking, so they decide to make a new song to include Jeremiah.

My granddaughter loves it, she's 1-1/2 yrs old. Bright, colorful pictures.

Thank You, Mr. Falker - Patricia Polacco (who may also have others in this theme)

Holocaust-related books may use the theme of being different.

I saw that somebody already mentioned "Tacky the Penguin" which is a really fun one. Also, there is a picture book called "Underwear" which is about a grump buffalo who doesn't want to fit in but eventually learns to have a sense of humor and thus, fit in better with the other animals. Not sure if that is exactly what you're looking for but I thought I'd mention it.

Tracey says:
It's not really a picture book (a chapter book with a few pictures) but it fits the theme of difference and inclusion (spanning race, disability, culture, individuality, etc.). The book is called A Slip In time: The Book Of Eventide. It is a fantasy/adventure/mystery for kids between age 8 and 16.

Sounds like there are many good possibilities to help children learn about inclusiveness. :)
I would also like to add my own book, THE CRYSTAL PALACE: RESCUE OF THE BABY FAIRY PRINCE, but even more to introduce the second in the series, THE CRYSTAL PALACE #2: REBELLION IN FAIRYLAND, which will be published this fall. In this book, the three human girls travel once more to Fairyland, but this time they begin to notice the inequities in the medieval society of Fairyland. The ogres and trolls were not treated fairly and they rebel. The girls are swept up in the rebellion and end up helping to mediate a solution to bring fairness to Fairyland. The ogres and trolls were not as beautiful, by fairy standards, and they were kept in menial jobs and denied educations to better their lives. A lesson in prejudice and fairness, but shown in the safe, imaginary world of the fairy folk.
Please see my website: www.michelehauserstories.com or my publisher's website for me: www.outskirtspress.com/crystalpalace

You should check out "The Crayon Box that Talked"...great book for teaching children about treating others the same! I used this in my preschool classroom for many years!

You might find "Helga, the Hippopotamouse" interesting. Helga is half hippo and half mouse and deals with issues of looking different and not fitting in. Her only friends are imaginary until she meets a group of cats that invite her to dance with them.
