A Little Bit Different
Publisher: Words & Pictures
The Ploofers - little beings that look like upside-down balloons - have been busy practicing something very special, and now they’re ready to show everyone. Sadly, their new trick doesn’t quite go to plan when one of their number puffs out a different colour to all the others.
The other Ploofers are confused, and the one who deviated from the plan is left feeling alone and sad. Yet, before long, the lonely Ploofer makes a new friend who makes sure he understands that what he did was different in the best possible way. Perhaps it’s even more special. And, maybe all the Ploofers will start doing it…
This is a wonderful book with simple yet beautiful illustrations. Ultimately, it teaches children that being a little bit different is more than okay: it’s what makes you unique and brilliant.
