Learning that Different is Okay Charlie likes to do things with his friends, but sometimes he likes to do things by himself. He feels different when he likes to draw alone, but his mother tells him it’s okay to be different. One day at the park he meets Emma. She’s really different, but is that okay? This is a lovely book to teach children about disability and even more to tell them that being different is all right. We all have have areas where we’re different and children can learn to accept this about themselves as well as others. The book has watercolor illustrations that children can relate to. The words are simple and tell the story in a way children can understand. This is a good book to read aloud and discuss, but children in first or second grade can it read it to themselves. I received this book from PR by the Book for this review.
