We're Different, We're the Same is a book stressing how people and Muppets may differ in size, shape, color, and other external details, but remain fundamentally the same. A series of pages contrast illustrated snapshots of different noses, mouth, hairstyles, and other features, followed by a page showing a mass of people enjoying similar activities.

In 2018, the Sesame Street YouTube channel posted a read-along video with Gordon reading the story, and featuring Elmo and Abby Cadabby. (YouTube)
