Product Details


Using very simple cut-paper art, the author-illustrator explores what can happen when someone goes from one country to another. There a re new faces and places and sometimes the climate, plants, customs, food, and people’s skin color can be different, too. When our words differ and we cannot understand one another, people sometimes feel bad, fight, and hurt one another. The author urges the listener to stop and think, “Are we really as different as we think?” With the simple analogy of the benefit the sun and the rain bring to flowers, she suggests that we use our tears and smiles to help friendship grow because friendships, like rainbows, are for everyone. A very simply written and effective book to help young children understand and accept their cultural differences. Would be wonderful to initiate discussions in primary classes in every elementary school.
