  • Praise for Todd Parr

    "Parr preaches the message of self-acceptance and tolerance of others." - School Library Journal

    "Parr focuses on acceptance and individuality and encourages readers to do the same." - Publishers Weekly

    "It's rare that a children's author appeals to adults, but when it happens, it's usually magic; Dr.Seuss, Shel Silverstein... Well, I've found another to add to the list: Todd Parr." - Kansas City Star

     

  • "Reading this book aloud to little ones, and discussing the pictures and concepts is a great way to start kids on a lifetime of openly discussing feelings and problems. This book has wonderful, feel good, positive messages of acceptance and confidence that promote understanding and are fun to read for kids and the adults who love them." 

      (Myshelf.com).

  • "The book unites the concept of tolerance of differences with simple images for easy understanding and comprehension. It's Okay to be Different encourages readers to accept themselves and others." (Children's Literature).

  • "[Parr] wisely doesn't zero in on specifics, which would force him to establish what's 'normal.' Instead, he focuses on acceptance and individuality and encourages readers to do the same." (Publisher's Weekly).
