I gave this to my 9-year-od son Cameron to read and tell me what he thought.
Woodburn and Feek believed in their book to the extent that they took a big financial risk by self-publishing.
According to Cameron, it was worth it. He (and I) love the vibrant, exciting, quirky an detailed illustrations. The rhyming story, in the same nature as Dr Seuss, is challenging enough but not too daunting and opens children’s minds to the fact that there are lots of different people living in different places and doing different things in our world, but that we all belong.
Words and illustrations reveal more on each separate reading, so it’s definitely one to leave lying around to be picked up over and over.
