Why we're donating $100,000 worth of children's books
Ethicool is looking for a charity partner to donate $100,000 worth of books. Here's why we think this donation is so important.
An accessible, charming book that teaches the reader how good it can be to embrace differences. The characters show respect for those differences by honoring boundries and communicating their own; a message of respect as part of acceptance is an important one that's refreshing to see in a children's story.
Absolutely beautiful books.
Beautifully written and illustrated books!
This beautifully illustrated and written book shows us how we are harming the environment and that things need to change. Its a wonderful way to educate and inspire people to change.
Such a beautifully illustrated book with such an important message for our children, put in a really easy to understand way for them.
Beautiful books, my Grandson loves them.
This is such a wonderful book a very clever way to introduce the concept of inclusion. Characters, colors and relationships portrayed in this book are so beautiful and mesmerizing. This is my niece's fav book and has to be read atleast once a day.
This is a wonderful book with beautiful colourful images. The Author simplifies the message of diversity very cleverly. I highly recommend this book for young children.
Just Like Me
Such a wonderful book and written in an incredibly sensitive way to tell the story of a real life issue that effects so many people and families.
This is a BEAUTIFUL book in every sense of the term. The illustrations are gorgeous with lots of little details to discover and talk about (with a few that are really special - I love the big burley dad folding little undies … the hours that I’ve done that myself … lol!). The story is one that features a great twist and message. My little girls ask for this book at bedtime all the time … take their word for it: this is a great story!
Was great book with a lovely message, loved this.
