Picture Book Friday

THERE’S ONLY ONE YOU by Kathryn Heling and Deborah Hembrook with illustrations by Rose Butcher is a celebration of diversity and the special qualities that make each of us one-of-a-kind!

Are you outgoing or introvert? Boisterous or quiet? The simple but charming rhyming text speaks directly to the reader as it explores the many ways in which YOU are unique and assures the audience that being you is wonderful! The text pays attention to the obvious – differences in appearance – but gives equal consideration to other more subtle qualities:
Do your feelings spill out?
Do they lay low and hide?

The narrative explores interests, abilities, manner of speaking, even the various ways in which learning takes place.  This joyful and uplifting story concludes by focusing on how we relate to one another --
Families are families,
but soon you will find
That each can be different –
A “best-for-them” kind.

Butcher's thoughtfully detailed illustrations create a richly diverse neighborhood that invites children to find themselves and their families within the pages.
Recommended for home and school libraries.
