No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion

A Mighty Girl

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” — Nelson Mandela

For a beautifully-illustrated picture book, filled with pictures of girls and boys from around the world, that teaches children that no matter where we come from “love is the same,” check out Mem Fox’s “Whoever You Are” for ages 3 to 8 at http://www.amightygirl.com/whoever-you-are

For many Mighty Girl stories for both children and teens that encourage tolerance and acceptance of differences, visit our “Tolerance” section at http://www.amightygirl.com/books/personal-development/values?cat=216
