That One Green Tile
In this rhyming, melodic story, a mother tells her little girl that somewhere in the world lives another little girl who looks just like her. This propels her daughter into a journey of the imagination, where she visits locales from Spain to Japan, visualizing this other person in her familiar surroundings. From page to page, the little girl explores the possibilities in her head:
I think each night she wishes upon a star,
Or finds pictures in billowy clouds from afar.
At the end of the story, readers are reminded that for all our similarities, each one is unique. And for all our differences, we share the same sky.
Children will return to this delightful story over and over again as they learn a beautiful lesson about unity and diversity.
