Picture Book Spotlight – Embrace Yourself!

Red: A Crayon’s Story by Michael Hall is a wonderful story about a red crayon, whose attempts to be and act “red” turn out all wrong. In reality, Red is actually a blue crayon, wearing a red wrapper. This sweet and simple story teaches Red to embrace his uniqueness and accept himself for who he truly is. Once he does, he soars through a blue-colored sky and finds his happiness.

This beautiful story covers such a broad range of topics in its simplicity. Acceptance, diversity, perseverance, tolerance, and embracing your inner talents are just a few of our favorite themes in this book.
