    Neither is a lovely book. So colorful. This book can easily lead to a discussion
    about being different; and it doesn’t matter.
    This will go into my Free Little Library.

    Super cute book about inclusion and diversity. It also highlights how harmful exclusionary practices can be, and how it makes others feel. I like how this book also has the dialogue bubbles which can be a fun way to partner read for students. This book would be a great starter book for bigger conversations.

    “Neither” is a lovely book which can be enjoyed as a whimsical object lesson in differences, commonalities, and the joys of celebrating diversity. A nice conversation starter as we strive to create spaces where everyone fits in.

    Great book on inclusivity and diversity. I love that it can be used a very simplistic level, (we are all different and that is ok). Or can be used to inspire much high level and deeper level thinking on topics of inclusivity as it may relate to gender, ethnicity, race, religion, economic, or more.

    I expected this to be a book about ‘being different’ but it turned out to give off big trans agenda vibes. There are only two ways to be! NO there are infinite ways in all the rainbow colors!

    Which is fine, if that’s what you are looking for in toddler literature. But if not, this might not be the book for you 🤷‍♀️

    Very well made board book with cute graphics that are appealing to the age. Wonderful text that really brings alive the message of acceptance, differences and inclusion.

    This is a delightfully illustrated book about a creature that doesn’t quite fit in until they find a place where everyone belongs! A perfect story to share with my 3 year old.

    A wonderful book which begins the conversation for very young children about differences and acceptance of all.

  42. Ashley Marcus (verified owner)

    This is a fantastic book for children who feel othered and need some encouragement that there is a community out there that will accept them for who they are. Cute pictures, too!

    This book was lovely. It shows how sometimes people are excluded for not fitting and teaches about acceptance. I will be adding it to an infant toddler classroom
