Who Is My Neighbor? by Amy-Jill Levine & Sandy Eisenberg Sasso & Illustrated by Denise Turu

Buy it on Amazon

My thoughts: This is a colorful and quite cheery modern take on the Biblical story of The Good Samaratin. It isn't just about diversity though it can easily be used to teach it. Primarily, it is about compassion, social interaction, and just plain being nice to one another.

A cute story of the yellows and blues and how the two don't mix... until one day a need of compassion comes into the mix and then you get a bit of mixing. The illustrations are cute and I think kids will thoroughly enjoy them.

A good book for church and libraries as well as the Christian home.

About the book: Blues and Yellows just don't mix, and that's how it's always been. No one remembers why. But then comes the day Midnight Blue takes a tumble along the road. His friends Navy and Powder Blue don't even stop to help! It's only when a Yellow comes along that everything changes—forever.

This creative story is sure to prompt rich conversations, encouraging new ways of seeing our neighbors and ourselves. A note for parents and educators is included.

Disclosure: I won an uncorrected, advance reader copy in a draw on contest. Review is complimentary and my own opinions freely given.
