We are Growing by Laurie Keller - ESSENTIAL

Keller, Laurie We Are Growing EARLY READER. Hyperion Books for Children (Disney Book Group) 2016. $9.99. Content: G.  

When 8 blades of grass all start growing at once, they recognize the special in each other (who is the tallest, the pointiest, the curliest) but Walt isn’t any of those things. What makes him special?  

Introduced by Mo Willems’ Elephant and Piggie, this early reader has the same comic sillyness, the characters telling their own story in word bubbles and pictures.  A fun lesson in diversity and equality, this is a nice continuation to the series, and is the 2017 winner of the Geisel Award.
