This book was so colorful in the artwork and the character drawings were so eye-catching and adorable drawn that the message was conveyed very clear. Every library and household should own this book and everyone no matter what age should be able to relate well to this book and be immediately drawn to the beautiful colors and the positive message behind this book. We will definitely consider this title for our picture book collection at the library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.
This book celebrates individuality or “you-ness” It is a self-affirming book which talks about what makes you special. It will help teach self-esteem and that it is not just okay, but expected that you are unique and different. I have to say that there are a lot of books out there that do this, and this was not my favourite. The illustrations are large, done with big paint strokes and sponging in bright colors that show nice texture. The children throughout are racially diverse. The text was done in a rhyming pattern that gave a nice cadence or rhythm to the story, until it didn't and that caused me to stumble in my reading aloud. I did like that the author stressed that the way you look is only one teensy part, which I think is a very important message. Unfortunately, my grandson was really not impressed with this one. I do think it would make a good addition to a preschool or kindergarten classroom. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book upon request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own.
