I wouldn't read this to my (theoretical) child, because I wouldn't want to suggest that I, as her mother, might be as belittling as Cassandra's mother.

I met this author at a craft fair a few years back. She was lovely and wrote a beautiful inscription in this book for me. This book, even though written for children, came at the perfect time in my life and is great for letting anyone know that they are worthy and are not equal to what other people think of them.

Surreal illustrations and rhyming text invite us to rise above the judgements of others and stay true to our authentic selves.
