2021 FAPA President’s Book Award: Bronze: Children – Grades 4-6
A humorous and inspiring story about people in The Land of No, who for generations were stuck in their old ways until a new family moves to town. After resistance and suspicion of this upbeat, kind and colorful family, the people of this down town realize their negativity is positively wrong. This book teaches us about real life issues regarding tolerance, coexistence, positivity and happiness. In the end, the mayor decides to rename the town The Land of Yes.
Children will love this beautifully illustrated book that turns from black and white to color as the townspeople embrace change. Great conversation starters for teachers, parents, guardians or grandparents to discuss the importance of accepting those who are different.
