The book is a sequel to the bestseller and Mom’s Choice Award title, What I Like About Me: A Book Celebrating Differences, a popular children’s book about self-esteem.
With fun photos, diversity messages, instructive notes for parents and children, and playful charts so children can keep track of new friends, What I Like About You encourages youngsters to form their own opinions of others based on their actions, not their appearance.
“Throughout the book, kids get a chance to see children who aren’t their mirror image judged by the narrator on whether they’re nice, smart, funny, kind, silly, etc.,” says Zobel Nolan. “This helps them understand that these attributes are not mutually exclusive to any one race or culture. Anyone can be nice, loyal, fun.”
Zobel Nolan hopes the book can be used by schools, churches and other organizations to foster tolerance, understanding and acceptance.
A dollar from the sale of each book will be donated to the Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary. Located in Newtown, Connecticut, CVH’s mission is to enrich the lives of all beings by promoting compassion and acceptance through programs that honor the human-animal bond.
