Neither by Airlie Anderson is a beautiful story about trying to fit in and feeling valued and included. In the world of yellow birds and blue bunnies, a green egg hatches into a creature that is neither/both. After being excluded from the “Land of This and That”, the creature discovers a new land where all are welcome and loved. The simple text and colorful illustrations captured the attention and hearts of my young readers.
Teacher says: In addition to the important message of inclusion, I used the illustrations to teach visual thinking strategies. Students dove into the illustrations and added to the narrative of the story.
Students drew and shared their own special creature for the “Land of All.” They loved this book!
