I enjoyed this book, i've seen other reviewers say it's too simple or that they wished they hadn't used such abstract characters, and i respectfully disagree.

To some more, conservative readers, books like this can often be over the top, or in there face about it's subject matter, this book instead decide to take it's message (of acceptance and being who you were born to be) and wraps it up and a cute and colorfully illustrated story of animals and even some talking food.

This book is more subtle than most and it's simple enough that even the youngest audience can get the message,
and it's a message that i think Mr Rogers said beautifully "I like you just the way you are"

My only criticism of this book (and it's not so much a criticism of the book as it is of our current world) is that it may give children an overly positive expectation of the world they're growing into, but my hope it that it would teach them to be the accepting ones, to be the change in our world.
