Description


A gentle introduction to diversity and acceptance
 
On nice and sunny Sundays, Elsie goes fishing with her six siblings. But she doesn’t quite fit in. They want to walk through the woods, but she wants to walk along the water. They like to cast their fishing rods directly into the water, but she prefers to use buttercups as bait. They eat their sandwiches, while Elsie feeds them to the ducks. But by the end of the day, Elsie’s siblings realize that though they may see the world differently, they can learn from their unique perspectives and love one another all the same. This sweet sibling story gently introduces young readers to important themes like diversity and acceptance and encourages us all to widen our worldviews and open our hearts.

Praise For…


"From the text to illustrations, this book has a completely throwback feel as a small bunny wins her siblings’ respect. Large illustrations, ready action, and energetic dialogue make it a good one for story time."
