Carrot & Pea: An Unlikely Friendship is a cute story about friendship. Written and illustrated by Morag Hood, this short and simple book tells the story of two friends that are very different. It reinforces the message that we don’t all have to be the same or even be able to do the same things to be friends. This story could easily be used to have a conversation about diversity in all forms. When we meet someone with different abilities, we can find new ways to play and include each other. It’s also a great opportunity to reinforce being yourself. True friends accept us for who we are. This book is super short and perfect for young ones. But the story can be valuable to older kids too that may find deeper meaning in the story.
