This is a cute picture book teaching kids that it doesn't matter if we are different. We don't all have to look alike to be in the in crowd. Tolerating others differences is of utmost importance when it comes to friendship. It shouldn't be that we look like others to be accepted, but that we are accepted for who we are. I'm going to share this book with the children that I teach in my afters chool program.
"Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become." -C.S. Lewis
