Love the illustrations as much as the message

+ + It does a good job in simplifying the message; using simple logic with preferences in colours and food and then building to include skin colour and physical handicaps.
- I felt that the book was too short and could have done with more examples, specifically more skin tones and cultural identities, so that we could talk about those more using the book. Even just a single page with different faces and cultural identities would lead to a lot of positive chat!
- Children this age understand and relate to some emotions. This book has none.
- - The art work is not good and he was not at all engaged with what he was seeing. For a young children's book, I feel that was the biggest demerit. He is simply not interested in reading the book again voluntarily.
- Since when is a broken leg in a cast 'diversity'? I found that example to be completely off the mark. Colour, handicaps, cultural backgrounds are aspects of identity and self-identity. Considering the lack of other examples in this book, I was a bit annoyed.
In short, I do not recommend unless you are really stretching for materials and spending some cash now seems like a good idea until you can find something better. 2 stars for being a small springboard into a difficult subject.
