"The value of diversity is woven through the child-like drawing and reinforces the topic of variety and uniqueness. The illustrations sparkle with colour and warmth...The underlying powerful message is one of respecting the variety in our world, and readers are left with the optimistic spin of celebrating differences. It is never too early to teach even the youngest that we are all different and special in our own way." - CM Magazine
"This is a good book as a one-on-one read aloud or with a small group of students. It would be a perfect 'just in time' book after a distressing event...or to help explain a negative current event in the news...This would be a valuable book in the home, classroom and school library." - Resource Links
