Despite its messages of acceptance and anti-bullying, the children’s memoir ranked No. 4 on the American Library Association’s list of Top Ten Challenged Books of 2016.
This is a really sweet picture book about a child looking for love and acceptance in her world, and to her true self. I think that message is at the heart of many children’s books that I come across as a children’s librarian, and lover of books! It can be rather difficult to accept who you are when the world around you wants to fit you into their box of “normalcy”.
