Playful words lead you into this beautiful children’s book and invite you to celebrate our gifts,our weaknesses,our differences and our sameness. Fitch displays her wit and mastery of words in quick, rollicking rhymes that are complemented by Emma Fitzgerald’s lively illustrations. EveryBody’s Different on EveryBody Street was originally produced in 2001 as a fundraiser to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the Festival of Trees in support of the Nova Scotia Hospital and to raise awareness for mental illness and addiction.
Sheree Fitch has won almost every major award for Canadian children’s literature, including the 2000 Vicky Metcalf Award for Children’s Literature for a body of work inspirational to Canadian children. She has over twenty-five books to her credit. Sheree lives in River John, Nova Scotia. For more information, visit www.shereefitch.com.
Author and Illustrator Emma FitzGerald loves to draw, dance, and see the world. Her first book is “Hand Drawn Halifax”, and she is currently at work on “Hand Drawn Vancouver” to be published in 2020. For these books she draws on location, weaving in stories that people share with her and things she overhears. Her first children’s book project “EveryBody’s Different on EveryBody Street” was written by Sheree Fitch, and was written to spark conversations around mental health. When Emma isn’t drawing, dancing, or travelling, she is usually enjoying a good cup of tea.
