While preparing for a visit to her grandmother, a young girl notices that, like the flowers in Grammie's garden, people who are different from one another also share similarities and it's okay to like them all the same.

Focusing on the commonality of differences, rather than on differences themselves, is in line with what I teach my own kids, and fosters the notion of unity among people, regardless of appearances, behaviors or beliefs. Lori Mitchell's simple story and enchanting illustrations (realism meets folksy cartoons)serves as a necessary discussion-opener for all families. Every family should have a copy of this story for their young children.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

When my daughter's classmates starting enquiring about 'her mommy's' skin disorder, this children's book came to my rescue. How often do you find a book that glorifies the remarkable things we have in common and praises the differences that make us unique. Every parent should own a copy of this book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
