“Engaging in conversations with young children about diversity is an important part of children understanding the world around them,” author Michelle Chalmers advises.
The author aims to foster an awareness of the importance of teaching children the benefits of diversity and of being a global citizen. Guiding children through understanding similarities and differences of people can be rewarding and can enable children to live richer lives.
This is the first children's book for Michelle Chalmers, who lives in Wellesley, Massachusetts with her husband and two sons.
