SHORT BOOK DESCRIPTION:
Sometimes kids feel like they can't be real, and who they are inside, they often try to hide it. This was true for a little girl named Millicent, who learned that being different, is alright. As a matter of fact, the only things that make us the same are our differences.
With bullying and mean behavior running rampant in our communities, it is important that our children are taught a code of conduct that promotes love, acceptance, and respect for themselves and others.

AND NOW...THE FIRST PAGES (Click on pictures to enlarge):
A really cute story about a little girl with a love of "tails". She knows she is not an animal, she is a girl who loves "tails". I read this book with my two boys, they are 6 and 8, and definitely all boys. At first they didn't want to read a book about a "girl" thing. When we started the boys quickly got interested. They looked around the room, and then the house to see what they could use for tails. Such fun! They also talked about others making fun of them for their choices, and how it made them feel bad. They also wondered if they could sell some of the things they made. Why not?? There are a lot of good lessons included, and some really nice illustrations. A great lesson in differences! I received this book through First Wild Card Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
