Author’s new book offers readers an important lesson on acceptance
There have been many preconceived notions on mental illness, social awkwardness, or those who are simply different than what people think as normal. But the truth is people’s biases are oftentimes misconceived ideas. As a long-time advocate of teaching and showing people to embrace each other’s differences, author Sandra Lee Reynolds brings forth a compelling story, with vibrant illustrations, to spread an important message to the world: embrace differences through acceptance.
This book is about a girl with Down’s Syndrome who is discouraged by her disability because she feels like she doesn’t fit in, and has no friends because of it. However, Sierra refuses to let her disability discourage her from overcoming life’s challenges and is determined to be included. When Sierra voiced her opinion, others realized that being different doesn’t mean the person can’t do something. Everyone learned that extending kindness, patience, and acceptance is the key to humanity.
