Are you searching for a picture book that teaches kids about fitting in, embracing differences, and being true to your self, no matter what? I've got one for you!
I was browsing my local bookstore, and I found the most adorable book that I have seen in a while. There is something about this little unicorn named Kelp that makes my heart melt! He is just so cute!
Kelp was born under the sea and grew up with a family of narwhals. He always felt different from the rest of his friends and family. He couldn't do the same things that they did like swim well, grow a long, spiky tusk, or eat squid. One night, he discovers an island where creatures just like him live. He ventures on to land for the first time and finds out that he isn't a narwhal at all! He is a unicorn. He is happy to find creatures like him, but he misses his narwhal family. He can't choose what family he wants to be a part of, but it turns out that he doesn't need to choose. He can be a part of both families and embrace everyone's differences.
This book features the happiest, most adorable illustrations I have ever seen! I love the color palette of bright colors. This is a great story for preschoolers.
