What did you like about the book? There are eight blades of grass, all different in size and shape. Boing! One discovers it is growing! Suddenly they are ALL growing – differently, of course, since they are all different. One may be the tallest, but one is the silliest and one is curly, two are pointy and one is crunchy and one… is a dandelion! Then comes the lawn mower and we learn that one is the neatest! Everyone is unique and everyone is the something-ist.
Anything you didn’t like about it? Not a thing.
To whom would you recommend this book? Share this one with children who might be uncertain about how special they are. This is a good confidence builder while being silly and funny. Also very good for fans of Mo Willems.
Who should buy this book? All public libraries, day-cares and lower elementary school grades.
Where would you shelve it? Beginning readers
Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? Yes.
