We wrote this book about children of many backgrounds, interests, and abilities. We need children to know that they are all important and valued. Everyone deserves respect, understanding and kindness. This book is a reminder that it is okay to play alone or with friends. It is okay to cry or to be sad. It is okay to do anything or be anything that you want to be. The most important thing is that you are yourself because... it is GREAT to be YOU! -- publisher
