Judgmental Flower, The

Book, 2016, 31 pages, Grades K-6

Little Flower, who is blue, doesn’t like the strange-looking purple flower growing so near. He tells his mother that purples do not belong in their flower bed. Fearing that her little one is growing in the wrong direction, Momma Blue offers a lesson of diversity by explaining how the wind, rain, sun and bees treat all flowers the same, regardless of the color of their petals or the size of their stems. This story includes tips for parents and educators on how to help children appreciate differences and embrace diversity in life and friendships through communication and trust.
