Another excellent picture book by one of my favorite authors, Todd Parr. His books make me happy to be alive. Pairs well with Karen Beaumont's book, I Like Myself. <3

This book is just what the world needs now. It is a celebration of diversity. The message "Be who you are" is clear, but it also reminds the reader to accept others for being who they are meant to be as well. The short text and vibrant illustrations make this an ideal choice for young readers or a read aloud for toddlers and preschoolers. A fun book with an important message.
