This Picture Book provides a great way to introduce an appreciation of differences between individuals in young readers. The illustrations and writing complement each other beautifully.

Story of perceptions and individuality; how different people view the world and how this can ostracise them.

Luke's Way of Looking tells about a boy named Luke who saw things differently. The art teacher failed to appreciate Luke's creativity, but Luke kept holding on to his imagination. This is such a great book that tells us it's okay to be different. Just because you see things differently, doesn't mean you're wrong.
Great book for any modern or surrealist work. Great story where the Luke discovers that his different perspective is not wrong as his teacher belittles him. Instead after visiting an art museum, he learns that many great artists also had the same perspective that he has.
A lovely, cute children's book. My wife plans to write a children's book. I am doing some research so I can help her. Also I am trying to win my reading challenge and children's books are going to be the only way.
For every child, or adult, who 'sees' things differently, because a creative eye can be so exciting and can free you from a very dull classroom.
