Review – It’s Okay to be Different

“It’s Okay to Be Different”, written and illustrated by Todd Parr.

About: It’s okay to be different – to look different, to do different things, to come from different places, and Todd Parr illustrates this with bold, bright pictures and plenty of silly. Physical differences, having and expressing your emotions, doing totally random things just because. They’re all OK. I like the way useful social and emotional pointers are slipped in amongst the hilarity.

Good things:

  • Social and emotional pointers
  • Hilarity in text and pictures
  • Promotes acknowledgement and acceptance of diversity
  • Small number of words on each page, big and easy to read.
