Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Velvet is odd. Instead of dolls that talk and cry, Velvet brings a milkweed pod for show and tell. She wins the class art contest using only an eight-pack of crayons. She likes to collect rocks. Even her name is strange-Velvet! But as the school year unfolds, the things Velvet does and the things that Velvet says slowly begin to make sense. And, in the end, Velvet's classmates discover that being different is what makes Velvet so much fun.

This is a lovely book on many levels. The illustrations are beautiful and unique! The content was very appropriate...I read it to my college students who are studying Support Children with Special Needs. This book speaks about anyone who is different and I really like the way it doesn't identify what her differences are, just that she is different. It was a good segue into my first lecture on the human rights of people with disabilities.
Thanks!
