Book reviews

Very good message for kids

This book was a great introduction to discussing differences and accepting others despite having differences. It was a very positive message about just liking each other for who you are, not what you are. My son really enjoyed the book, and I enjoyed the positive message. Looking forward to more books in the series!


The author uses vibrant colors and simple language to convey a poignant ongoing issue in our world. The issue of exclusion. Sometimes it’s racism, or sexism, or classism. That list is sadly endless. Here the author uses the love of skateboarding as a symbol of the many things that can unite us. He demonstrates the sadness of how there are those in the world who refuse to embrace diversity, but there is always hope as there is always someone who identifies with us somehow, regardless of the differences between us. In the end we all just want to be happy.


What a wonderful and well thought out book. Very easy to read your kids with message being recieved to build the social foundation. I cant wait for the next book of the series.

A story of acceptance

This is a great read for young children and school-age alike! The repetitive patterns in the story help reinforce reading strategies and skills, while also reinforcing an important message for everyone: accepting and celebrating our differences makes for more fun for everyone. My nephew loves the characters!

Excellent read!
