The clip raises an excellent question, Emma. Of course it's so easy to feel good about ourselves if we can spend a week or so being mostly "nice". Needless to say, there's no real excuse for the other 51 weeks of the year. Why should we need a special season to do the thing that should be routine?
Delightfully told in rhyming verse, this story features a young hero (Sophie) who encourages a self-conscious king to show himself even though he is different. Sensitive and silly, this vibrantly illustrated tale will show readers that when we embrace diversity and difference, we open up a world of friendship and possibilities.
