These books, deceptively simple, play on the themes of tolerance, acceptance and the power of one voice. All the classes I've read them to have loved the books - both the art and the message. We can all learn something about being better people from Kathryn Otoshi's books. She'll be speaking to the students about her message and the writing process.
All students were (or will be) given a flyer to take home so they can buy Kathryn's beautiful books. I encourage you to buy one - these are beautiful books that can be enjoyed and talked about by the whole family. If you haven't read the books before, I'd recommend Beautiful Hands for grades TK-1st and the others for all ages. Orders are due Friday, March 11th. If you need a flyer, stop by the library and pick up an extra one!
Here is a wonderful interview with Kathryn talking about her book, One.
