A timely parable on fitting in, labels, self-esteem, and identity: A funny but comforting story to share with children who wrestle with anxiety or self-esteem issues or with kids who identify as gender fluid/non-binary. It’s also a great way to open a discussion about kindness and acceptance.
Ideal for Millennial parents: Avocadoes + anxiety = a book that hits on two perennial themes for young Millennial parents.
Diverse author/illustrator: Momoko Abe is Japanese.
A cool package: This debut author/illustrator’s retro-but-current style and wry Avocado expressions throughout is both hip looking and hilarious.
Kids love avocados!
“A delightful tale to help readers figure out where they belong, and, if a wise tomato is any indication, why that question may not even matter.” —School Library Journal
“Pair this with Underwood’s Ogilvy (BCCB 5/19) for a celebration of nonconformity (of produce or otherwise), or simply bring it out for any food-themed storytime.” —Bulletin
