This brightly illustrated book will be a useful addition to classroom and library shelves. In this story, it is diversity week at school. Students from Japan, Mexico and Hawaii share some of their traditions and the children learn from one another. Suggestions for responding to new experiences will encourage politeness among those who are being exposed to something for the first time. Diversity is presented as a positive value in which all have something to contribute. The book also includes suggestions for the adults in students’ lives.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
