Let’s Celebrate Being Different

Being different can be an extremely tricky thing, especially for young children. In Let’s Celebrate Being Different by Lainey Dee, we are introduced to a very special and remarkable character, Todd. He is part bird, bear, and tiger. He is visiting his grandmother for the weekend and will be attending the Friday Night Club with other children he has never met before. He does not have many friends because he is homeschooled, and hopes that his being different won’t keep him from making some friends. He is rightfully nervous, but his grandmother cheers him on and reassures him that being different is not a bad thing.

I adored that the author’s purpose going into writing this book was to help others not only recognize but embrace how different we all are. That we should celebrate that fact and fully live happy, joyous lives because of it. Everyone can relate to feeling out of place or even strange when we compare ourselves to others. The author does a remarkable job of shedding light on this issue and creating a scenario where the worries are shared and acknowledged but then ratified of any negativity.

The writers’ characters can find common ground and be made to see how we are more alike than we realize but still so unique that we are able to shine in our own way. It is such an important message for growing minds and can aid in improving self-esteem and self-image. Also, learning to accept others is another important message given in this story, which is also critical for adolescent minds. It helps in learning more about other cultures, religions, and even civil courtesy.

Let’s Celebrate Being Different is a well-written children’s book for younger elementary-age children that teaches them self-confidence and self-acceptance. This would make a wonderful story for teachers to have in their classrooms to help children adapt to new environments and new classmates.
