If we want to bring up our children as sons and daughters of a multi-ethnic world, tolerant and open to what is new, we must help them to understand and appreciate differences right from a very young age. But how can we explain such a difficult topic to them using simple words that are easy for them to understand?
Through 10 fairy tales set in the most unusual and unfamiliar places, this book will offer us the opportunity to enter a world inhabited by various characters together with our young ones, with the precise objective of helping them to understand that you should not be afraid or ashamed of diversity.
Together with the Prince with 2 right feet and Gelsomino Nonose, we see pass before our eyes a coffee bean, a glass boy, a whole court of felt-tip pens in every colour, some more popular than others…
The aim is to teach children aged 3 to 6 that we are all a little different from each other, both inside and out, but that it is precisely this diversity that makes us stand out and that renders us unique. It is diversity that makes us truly special people.
