Acceptance of Others...

The Band-Aid Chicken
: A Story About Resisting Peer Pressure

by Becky Henton (2013, MarCo, 9.95)

Now in full color, this story written for young students has not only taught thousands of children about the unhappiness that is caused by bullying and harassment, but also about the advantages of courageous behavior and standing up for what you believe to be right regardless of what others say or do.

When a new chicken arrives, she refuses to participate in the ritual, proving it isn't necessary to do what others want just to be accepted. Color. Grades Pre-2. [10” x 9”...32 pages]

[11” x 9”...44 pages]

Chocolate Me

by Taye Diggs (2011, Feiwel & Friends, 16.99/hardback)

Evans wanted to collaborate on "Chocolate Me!," a book based on experiences of feeling different and trying to fit in as kids. Color. Grades K-3. [9” x 10.5”...40 pages]
