A charming picture book about tolerance…
Acceptance and individuality stay at the heart of Overmeer’s charming picture book about a young duck who’s different from her siblings. Ella, the youngest in the family, is different from her brothers and sisters in many ways: she is not so neat, and she likes to make her own music and sing loudly. Finding a friend who shares Ella’s passion becomes difficult. Overmeer’s simple prose successfully drives her simple statements of acceptance, friendship, and tolerance. Berenschot’s bright-hued illustrations are cheerful. The book successfully conveys the message that no matter what differences makes each unique, there’s always a way to carve your own space in the world and find the like-minded people who share your passion.
