It’s Okay to Be Different

by Todd Parr
(Ages 3-6) 

This colourful picture book explains in simple statements that it’s okay to be different. The book gives examples of the ways people are different: if they have missing teeth, if their nose is different, if they are a different colour, if they wear glasses. It’s Okay to Be Different promotes an overall message is acceptance of yourself and others, and understanding that being different is not bad. The colourful illustrations help exemplify the book’s positive message about diversity.
