Welcome to a classroom where diversity is not only normal, it's what makes this school so special. Starring children of all races and religions, wheelchair abled and not, childhood shines with its acceptance of everyone. Happiness simply glows off the pages as the students play their musical instruments and paint their pictures and hear the dinosaur story over on the storytime rug.
This is a celebration of what we can be together. Simply being children and gathering as families to celebrate the moon. So grab someone's hand and join in the circle. An outstanding book about the glories of accepting one and all.
