PreS-Gr 4–A lovely ode to the beauty of those with vitiligo is showcased in this rhyming picture book. An endearing nameless narrator takes readers through the various reasons why she “absolutely positively love my spots!” Her enthusiasm for everyday activities along with smiling faces of friends and family creates a sense of joy that permeates the book. When the narrator mentions unkind questions from other children, her parents are there reaffirming her beauty and her spirit. Bright colors along with a vast array of fine details makes this an excellent choice for patrons of all ages.
VERDICT Highly recommended for all picture book collections.
