We are all uniquely different, from our sizes and shapes to the colors of our hair and skin. Some of us walk on two feet, while others move around in wheelchairs. Some of us wear glasses and are shyly extra smart, while others like to pick on those who look and act differently. It’s a complex and colorful world in which we live and we must accept everyone for who they are and how they look.
Emma Ledden’s picture book story, All the Rainbow's Colours: A Book About Inclusion, Diversity and Belonging for Little Minds, addresses some complex issues about inclusion and diversity and the importance of making everyone feel like they belong. Sadly, these are difficult issues for people of all ages to understand and truly appreciate and it really shouldn’t be that way. We have all been created equal, even though we might look different or do things differently. No one is better than another and we must learn to be inclusive.
The points are presented in rhyming verse with colorful illustrations to help emphasize each one. The beginning lines sum up beautifully the many points the author is about to present: “When you look around this world,/ there is something you will see./ Sometimes others look like you,/ sometimes they look like me.” At the end of the book is an interactive exercise to make young readers recognize their own uniqueness and be able to identify all the colors that they represent. A very concise and thoughtful book to help young readers learn about and understand inclusion and diversity.
