Reviews

Diversity is a crucial issue, and this series effectively highlights the differences among various ethnic groups, religions, and types of households and shows readers that though different beliefs and customs exist, all are equally worthy of respect. The books are told from the first-person perspectives of young protagonists who interact with people in their communities, which will help kids relate directly to the subject matter. The cheerful, appealing illustrations complement the text, which is clear and straightforward yet also nuanced and culturally sensitive. Covering topics such as meals, languages, houses of worship, and a diverse and inclusive mix of families, the series emphasizes that it's best not to ignore differences but to learn more about them. VERDICT: All students can benefit from this series. School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
