*A friend of mine reached out with an opportunity to review a book about diversity for my blog. I received this book free of charge to facilitate my honest review.
"Sweet Neighbors Come in All Colors," by Lisa Blecker, is a super cute children's book! Many of you know that we donated over 100 books to NW Iowa schools in January to celebrate diverse texts and authors. This one was just released, but I'm adding it to my Amazon list of recommended books and I can't wait to share it with my early childhood friends!
The book has great illustrations and puts an emphasis on caring about all our friends, regardless of not only color, but shape! Of course shapes and colors are great learning concepts for young children, but I love the body positive image on top of the reference to different colors. Such a sweet, simple way to help young learners talk about how our differences make us great and the different types of people in our lives. It even comes with a song and links to YouTube videos!
