Melanie Walsh has once again created picture books for the youngest child. This time she introduces the concept of diversity, but her approach is very gentle:
Agnes has blue eyes. Kit’s eyes are brown. But . . .
they both close their eyes when they go to sleep.
The close-up and lively illustrations of kids and all their cute bits—eyes, hair, skin, noses, legs—will invite readers to tell what’s unique about themselves. And at the same time, children will see that there’s so much they have in common, too.
