Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

A charming and touching story – Dilly is a delightful character with a strong voice and a great tale of acceptance and change…

Encourages young children to embrace differences and help make positive change

The Book 

Dilly is an adorable baby penguin who is different from all the others.  She was born with an abnormality. She is missing one of her little legs so of course she does things differently than the other baby penguins do.  While they waddle everywhere Dilly hops, rolls, twirls, and is able to jump very high using her one strong leg. 

The adult penguins worry about Dilly's abilities and point out all of her short-comings which make Dilly very sad.  Her friends support her and help celebrate her differences.  They accept Dilly exactly as she is.  One day Dilly's discrepancies turn her into a Superhero amongst her peers and the adult colony. 

The illustrations are beautiful, expressive and fun. The message is positive and inspiring for both young and old.  This heartwarming book will spark meaningful conversations regarding acceptance, friendship and change.  I highly recommend it.  Kids will love it I'm sure!
