Odd Dog Out, by Rob Biddulph


"Someone on this street is dancing to a different beat. When they fly high...this dog flies low. When they say "Kick!"...this dog says "Throw!" It's very sad (cue violin) but this small dog does not fit in."

Colorful, expressive illustrations combine with rollicking rhyme to make the perfect read aloud! I loved how Dog leaves his home to find dogs who are like him and eventually returns home because he learns that his differences are what makes him special. This story helps helps kids embrace their differences, and embrace others who are different. This is the kind of message that resonates for all ages.

What books have you read recently about embracing differences?
