From the colorful cover with animals posing on a playset through collage illustrations of a crab on the beach (“some kids do the crawl”) or a bear eating a fish (“some kids love to eat”) to a bug leaping over a log (“some kids jump real high”), this picture book celebrates individuality.

Realistic descriptions accompany humorous pictures of animals. In a celebration of uniqueness, this book ends with this proclamation: “To all kids we say, each one of you is special.

Themes of identity, individuality, acceptance, and diversity create wonderful opportunities for discussion in home and school settings. (Nancy Brashear, reviewer)
