My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Zinnia is a beautiful pink girl, living in an all gold city. When a bully tells her that pink stinks her feelings are hurt. She decides she wants to change her color to gold so she can be like everyone else. On her journey to find a place to do just that she meets all sorts of different colored people. It’s through those people that she learns that she is perfect just the way she is, and there’s no need for change!

In today’s society, kids can be mean. They pick on others for being different. But it’s our differences that make us special and unique. Zinnia teaches us to embrace our differences and don’t let what others think bother you. I think this book should be in schools everywhere, with such a powerful message that all kids need to learn and understand. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous. This book is definitely mom approved!
