What’s the difference if she has light skin and yours is a little darker?

All that matters is the artwork you create together is as colorful as possible . . .

As he did in I Wonder, and Today Show parenting expert parenting guru Doyin Richards tackles a timely and universal subject—diversity and acceptance—and distills it for the youngest readers. Because what matters most is not our differences, but what we do together as friends, as families, as colleagues, as citizens. Perfect for sharing as a family or in the classroom, What's the Difference? should find a place in homes and in hearts.

Praise for I Wonder:

"Dads (and kids) of all types should find Richards’s message deeply reassuring and relatable." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

"[A] powerful book for children celebrating differences. ...In Richards’s words: “take a look at yourself. Your friends may not look like you, and that’s a good thing. Because when it comes to love, keep showing that there really is no difference.” A ... perfect read-aloud for young students."--School Library Journal
