In this story of creativity and imagination, Kirsten Bramsen tells a tale that helps children understand that individuality is something to be celebrated!
It was Margo’s birthday and she was thrilled when she awoke to the most marvelous present…a yellow tutu! She couldn’t believe her eyes, as it was the most beautiful thing she’d ever seen! When she put it on her head, she thought she looked like sunshine. Margo decided to wear it to school to show all of her friends. Imagine her dismay when, instead of sharing in her exuberance, they taunted her for being different. But Pearl saves the day when she says, “I like Margo’s yellow tutu and I think she looks just like a sunflower.”
The characters in this book are believable and the author has a real sense of the challenges young children face when they show their uniqueness. And, it reminds us that a real friend can make it all seem fine!
