3 - 8 years. In this colorful, inviting early childhood book, children from preschool to lower elementary learn about diversity in terms they can understand: hair that's straight or curly, families with many people or few, bodies that are big or small. With its wide-ranging examples and fun, highly detailed art, this book helps children appreciate the ways they are alike and affirm their individual differences--all while building self-confidence. Lively new art breathes fresh life into this classic introduction to diversity and self-esteem for children. A two-page adult section in the back provides tips and activities for parents and caregivers to reinforce the themes and lessons of the book. 48 pages. Paperback.
