This delightful picture book is a great example for tolerance and understanding the differences in society. Through so few words, the message of this book is loud and clear. Although the words are sparse, the illustrations are full page watercolor in warm tones of yellows, and blues that tell the story though images. Children can make up their own story when reading this book, building on concept and creativity.
