Selected for the White Raven 2020 list of recommendations! "Great book for kindergarten and first-grade students especially during the opening days of school... Delightfully illustrated, very colorful and eye-catching. This book should be a part of every classroom and school library. Homes and public libraries should own copies of this book, too. The story is always encouraging exploration, positive feelings, and adventures for young people." - ITEEA Kiki looks in the mirror. She thinks her fur is boring. Then Kiki has an idea. She uses pencils, ink, and paint to make herself colorful. Will her friends think she is special now? A fun story about appreciating yourself just the way you are. For all children ages 4 and up. Guided Reading Level I The lesson to take from the book is that we are all unique and special and we do not need approval. It's stunningly illustrated and it would make for a good read-aloud book while discussing the theme and ensuring children understand the key points.
