After our annual trip to the optometrist recently, both of my kids sulked on the way home…
They sulked because they had perfect eyesight.
How times have changed!
When I was a kid, I sulked all the way home because I DID need glasses.
I love that the times, they are a changing 🎵🎵🎵 . But we’re not quite there yet. It will be a wonderful world when every family is on board with celebrating our differences.
When the things that were once made fun of, are now admired. When no child is teased because they need glasses, or have braces or big ears.
A book about acceptance, What I Like About Me is the perfect opportunity to teach kids about celebrating our differences.
The book features a variety of children telling the reader what they like about themselves, each proud of their differences.
‘’When clouds appear, and skies are misty, that’s when my hair gets nice and twisty,’’ says one little girl with curly hair.
One boy likes his big ears, and some triplets like their freckles. One girl says her braces make her teeth shine twice as bright, and one boy says his big feet make any shoes look great.
The last page reinforces that we are all difference and that’s why life is great.
There is a mylar mirror embedded in this last page that lets kids take a look at themselves and decide what they like best.
