This lively, upbeat picture book carries a strong message to look beyond first impressions and discover that there's more to people that meets the eye. Amid Stacy Ebert's cute cartoon illustrations and Kelly Corrigan's propulsive text fueled by words that start with B ("The bystander bakes the best bannana bread in town") is a simple and valuable lesson: You can learn a lot from other people, and taking the time to hear their stories makes you smarter and builds empathy.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
