Reviews

Reading this book aloud to little ones, and discussing the pictures and concepts is a great way to start kids on a lifetime of openly discussing feelings and problems. This book has wonderful, feel good, positive messages of acceptance and confidence that promote understanding and are fun to read for kids and the adults who love them. --Myshelf.com [Parr] wisely doesn't zero in on specifics, which would force him to establish what's 'normal.

. --Publisher's Weekly The book unites the concept of tolerance of differences with simple images for easy understanding and comprehension. It's Okay to be Different encourages readers to accept themselves and others. --Children's Literature
