Summary: Join a lovable group of children in a delightful romp through an explanation of diversity, understanding it better, encouraging them to be compassionate towards others, regardless of who they are. Many kids today face bullying from their peers based on differences in race, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity. In a world where bullying and intolerance of diversity is becoming increasingly a problem, it's important to teach children - and adults - compassion for others. This book was written to inspire kids (and the adults who read it with kids) who are bullied for being different without focusing too strongly on the bullying angle. Christina Engela is an author and long-time human rights activist with experience in dealing with various types of bullying.
