I'm always looking for quality picture books for my preschooler that show diversity without diversity being what the book is about. We got this because it was the 2018 Read for the Record pick. At first my son didn't want anything to do with it, because he doesn't like new things. But they read it at school and I read it at home and after repeated exposure he adored it and asked me to read it multiple times each day. He started reciting lines and we talk about it every time he paints. I'd initially gotten it from the library (because of him sometimes being adverse to new things) but when we returned it he was so disappointed that I immediately purchased a copy. When he's older we'll dive more into the true story that inspired the book. Plus, the illustrations are gorgeous! A great addition to any home or school library that will age well with the reader(s) in your life.
