Publisher's Summary

Every child is unique! Whether they are big or small, short or tall, like to swim, dance, sing, or bike. Perhaps they have a special need, or are from a different ethnic background. Maybe they wear glasses, or talk differently. The truth is that all children are different, and their individuality should be celebrated, not shunned. And this inspiring rhyming book, based on the picture book, does just that. The fun and engaging way in which this audiobook has been narrated is sure to grab and hold the attention of young children.

As the stories highlight the ways kids are different from one another, it helps children to accept themselves and others as the beautifully unique individuals that they are. It's OK to Be Different encourages kids to be kind and befriend those who are different from themselves, showing young children that they don't have to look alike or enjoy doing the same activities to be kind to one another.

Listeners will come away with the message: You should always be kind to those who are different from you. Because to them, you are different, too.

As more children listen to this book and learn this concept, we can impact the world in a positive way, while at the same time teach early literacy. This nonfiction book closes with a short survey for children about kindness, and is a terrific way to help you start an age-appropriate conversation about diversity.

It's OK to Be Different is a kid's book that belongs in children's book libraries alongside other popular children's books, like Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown, because of the simplicity of the rhymes and its uniquely powerful message about kindness and diversity.

This audiobook is based on the original physical book It's OK to Be Different by Sharon Purtill.
