It’s Okay to Be Different by Todd Parr

I love the book It’s Okay to be Different because it shows the lils just exactly what different is: having no hair, to having different moms and dads, to having a dog as a friend, there’s no end to what being different is.  The point Parr makes is that it’s ok.  And sometimes the lil ones need to hear that from a book with pictures that make sense to them.

Here I am reading it.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.


What did you think of the book?

I had a similar book about 20 years ago for my daughter, but it had photographs. I was teaching her not to yell out things like, “Look how fat that man is”. Ah, motherhood.

smile. my 20 year old would scream “mommy LOOK that man has a ponytail like a GIRL!!!!”
