The Red Fence by Ed Damiano is a fun and educational book for children with a powerful message behind it. In the town of Vanderloo, where everything is the same, a new family arrives and causes chaos and upset with their different colored fence. The neighbours are angry and unaccepting of their red fence and try their best to paint it white like the rest. Eventually, more and more neighbors see that being different is okay, and they too paint their fences a different color. In the end, the neighbours accept that not everyone is the same and they should embrace their differences. Differences are what make us who we are, and this book will teach young children the importance of this concept. Pick up a copy today to teach your child the critical message this book is based on.

Ed Damiano has written an educational book that will be appealing to young readers. The characters have been illustrated excellently by Jenn Polk; they are colorful, professional, and attractive. The use of rhyming is effective in telling this story and it works flawlessly by making it easy for the young reader to follow along, as well as soaking up the important message the author is trying to convey. Ed Damiano is a talented children's author and he knows exactly how to capture the attention of a young reader. I hope he continues in his writing journey and I look forward to seeing what other lessons he has to teach. Good luck!
