It doesn\'t if you are different because you are allowed to be unique.

Holly, Primary Years (3-5)

it tells you that everyone is unique and no one is the same

I like this book mainly because of the message included in every part \"everyone is different, and that\'s ok, what\'s most important is that you let your differences shine\"nI think this is a great message for people who have low self-esteem.n
