I Am Different, I Am Great is a children's picture book written by Melody Kiang and illustrated by Jinulz. Little Mei Mei loves playing and learning with her friends at her kindergarten, but her accent sometimes makes it hard for her friends to understand her. Young Mei knows her accent makes her stand out from her friends who speak "normally” in her eyes and wishes that she could sound normal. So Mei asks her mother what she should do to sound normal, but her mommy tells her there's more to her than just her voice; she is made up of many beautiful pieces and should be proud of who she is. Join Mei Mei as she learns that it's okay to be yourself and be seen as different by the world.
I Am Different, I Am Great had a great message, one that more kids nowadays need to hear. Melody Kiang’s story is written in a fun-to-read format and approaches the delicate subject of being treated differently in a child-appropriate manner. The plot got its message across well and did a good job of reinforcing the idea that it's okay to be yourself. The illustrations are sure to be another treat for young ones, as they're bursting with vibrant color and character details. The color palette consists of warm tones that really complement the nature of the story and the characters’ expressions are incredible. I Am Different, I Am Great serves as a good book to keep kids occupied and it also imparts some valuable wisdom to their young minds.
