Opening Doors for Many Children

Diane Hull
Diane Hull Author Interview

Be Proud to Be Blue follows a baby bird that is rejected because of his color and finds his own self-confidence to make friends anyway. Why is this an important lesson for kids to learn early?

We should teach children from an early age to be proud of who they are. A positive sense of self is one of the greatest gifts we can give a child. Talking to children from an early age is important if we are to prepare them mentally for the future.

The illustrations of the frogs and goldfish in this book are my favorite. What is your favorite image or scene from the book?

I really like the scene where Baby bird makes friends with the frogs. They really seem to be having such fun together.

This book was written to be dyslexic inclusive. Why was this an important aspect of the book for you to include?

As an Early Years teacher, I think it is important to help children with dyslexia in every way possible to encourage a love of reading and build their confidence. By producing books with a font that makes the text easier to read, we are opening doors for many children.

Do you have future books planned with baby bird in them?

The first book, “Be Happy to Be You,” encourages children to be happy with their own strengths and individual rather than trying to be like everyone else. I have written a third story about the difficulties Baby bird has building a nest. His mother encourages but does not build the nest for him. The story teaches children about independence and perseverance.

This book is Dyslexic inclusive; it is printed in a font that everyone can read, including people with dyslexia.

Baby bird wasn’t happy.
He wanted to play with the fish and the horses and the frogs.
But they won’t play with him…
Because he is blue!
