Product description

Review

"It's OK to Be Different, celebrates children who have the courage to be themselves, and to accept others as they are. Young readers with an eye for exceptional artwork and clever wordplay will enjoy it over and over again." ★★★★★ Readers' Favorite

"Parents seeking read-alouds that educate kids about diversity and acceptance will find It's OK to be Different the perfect lesson of choice." D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Reviews

"It's OK to be Different has a great message and one that is especially important in a modern world that is connected globally like never before. The book is easy and fun to read. It has delightful illustrations to capture the eyes and minds of its audience." ★★★★★ Literary Titan Gold Award Winning Book.

"A wonderfully colourful junior picture book that teaches children that life is full of beautifully different people. I love the continuous rhyming as it teaches early literacy." Vicki Bruce, Lionart Publishing

About the Author

Sharon Purtill was a stay at home mom and entrepreneur when she stumbled into publishing in 1998. That year, along with her husband, she wrote and published her first book. That book's success took them both by surprise when it went on to sell tens of thousands of copies right out of their garage. Today, Sharon is an award winning author who publishes in multiple genres under a couple of different pseudonyms. Her passion for writing, family and a positive life motivates her to create books that she hopes will enrich the lives of others. She hopes to one day escape the cold, and write from a tropical beach somewhere where her biggest concerns will be sand sticking to her suntan lotion and an empty margarita glass. But, for now, Sharon treasures the warm summer months and the time she gets to spend with family and friends in Ontario, Canada.

By Samantha A on September 12, 2020
Sharon Purtill's Children's book titled "It's Ok to be Different," is a Beautiful and Wonderful story that educates Young Children about the importance of Accepting Others for who they are and celebrating everyone's unique Differences. I look forward to reading this book to my Kindergarten Students.

What a terrible book. Bought it for my kids because of positive reviews. Attached pictures from this book, please have a look and decide if you want 10 pages of nonsense for your kids.
