The Schwoe's of the distant land of PAR-ZEE-NO come in different shapes and sizes, but all of them have purple fur. One day a Schwoe is born with ruby red fur. This baby's parents love their little red Schwoe but those outside the family are not so sure. Children today need to learn to embrace the differences in others in order to be well adjusted and happy in society today. This charming book takes on the tricky topic of accepting and even embracing differences in a humorous but effective way through this simple but engaging story told in rhyme. By the end of the final rhyme "Don't Be a Schwoe" will become a catch phrase for acceptance. It's easy. It's fun. Early reader?ges 5-8.
