Making Meaning through Early Literacy
It’s Okay to be Different
by Todd Parr

“It’s okay to be a different color. It’s okay to dance by yourself. It’s okay to wear glasses. It’s okay to have a pet worm…It’s okay to be different!”
With his signature artistic style, featuring brightly colored, childlike figures outlined in heavy black, Parr shows readers over and over that just about anything goes. From the sensitive, “It’s okay to be adopted,” to the downright silly “It’s okay to eat macaroni and cheese in the bathtub”, kids of every shape, size, color, family makeup, and background will feel included in this gentle, witty book.
This is a great book for all ages! It has wonderful illustrations and is sure to touch the hearts of both children and parents!
Come on out for a great story and a fun craft to go along with it.
