Buy this book for everyone!
I was immediately taken with the theme of inclusion and diverse cultures. I bought a copy for my daughter, who is finishing her degrees in child development and family studies at CSULB. It made her cry! I got another copy for my 2-year-old granddaughter, thinking she'd have it to enjoy when she was older. My husband took it over to her house for a visit. Elle sat down to listen to him read every single word, then said, "Again!" The book doesn't dumb anything down, and the rhymes are sweet and not tiresome (as they are with many children's books). The illustrations are just gorgeous, and the message is refreshing and necessary as our world learns to include and understand things and people who don't look like they do.
