Description



About the Book



Illustrations and rhyming text introduce Macy, whose conduct and bearing point to a kinder world where differences are celebrated and embraced.



Book Synopsis



This joyful rhyming book encourages children to value the different in all people, leading the way to a kinder world in which the differences in all of us are celebrated and embraced.

Macy is a girl who's a lot like you and me, but she's also quite different, which is a great thing to be. With kindness, grace, and bravery, Macy finds her place in the world, bringing beauty and laughter wherever she goes and leading others to find delight in the unique design of every person.

Children are naturally aware of the differences they encounter in everyday life and relationships. They just need to be given tools to understand and appreciate what makes us different, permission to ask questions about it, and eyes to see and celebrate it in themselves as well as in those around them.
