This book teaches young children about difference. It teaches them to celebrate and value the uniqueness of children with exceptionalities. I would recommend this book to teachers who want to cultivate inclusion in their classrooms, and parents who want to teach their children to read, share a good story and cultivate values of acceptance and inclusion in their children. Tashia is an excellent storyteller who obviously understands children (the book is done with rhymes & beautiful animal pictures). Children will fall in love with Squilly and his love of numbers.
