 About the Book

Sometimes kids feel like they can't be real, and who they are inside, they often try to hide it. This was true for a little girl named Millicent, who learned that being different, is alright. As a matter of fact, the only things that make us the same are our differences.

With bullying and mean behavior running rampant in our communities, it is important that our children are taught a code of conduct that promotes love, acceptance, and respect for themselves and others.

My Review
I love children's books, especially when they have a good message. I really like what this book is trying to show a child. It's ok to be different. Millicent in the book was different because she liked playing that she had different tails. The only thing I didn't like was the language that Millicent used. Nothing bad but not really age appropriate. Here is an example of Millicent while they are shopping and people are making fun of her. This is what she says while in tears: "I don't think they appreciate my innovation. I don't wanna wear it anymore! I've lost my motivation. "
Now would a child really say this or even know what that means? Honestly I think it would be more confusing for a young child to read that section. But aside from that this is a good story for children to embrace their differences. 

" I received this book from FIRST and the author for free in exchange for an honest review."

  1. Hello Michelle,
    Thank you so much for your review and feedback. I agree that some of the vocabulary was a bit advanced for smaller children. However, they were strategically chosen in an effort to introduce new vocabulary words to a young audience. This is something I have done with my daughter since she was 2 years old. I've always used words that I knew she didn't know, so we could have a conversation about the word meanings while expanding her vocabulary.
    I pray that it does the same for other moms as they explain the meaning of the words to their children. :-)
    Be well and have a wonderful weekend.
