4 out of 5 stars on GoodReads

Lilly is a confident little girl, who is not phased by her friends questions about her appearance. Is she Hispanic, Black, White, Indian, Brazilian, or Italian? Lilly is happy with her beautiful dark skin, and her curly hair, and fierce eyebrows. She kindly reminds her friends that what is important about her is found on the inside with her big heart and smart mind.
I love that the writing tells the story in rhyme! It’s well-written and fun to read.
The illustrations are a little amateurish, but colorful and full of energy!

Lilly is such a wonderful character! She is kind and generous with her friends. She is a rambunctious little thing, vivacious and fun! On almost every page, she is jumping and skipping and running. She is proud of her looks, and knows that she is strong and resilient.

I love that this book has such a positive message to young kids, that no matter what you look like, and no matter if your friends come from a different race or heritage, we are all strong and beautiful just as we are!

This book includes children from many different races and ethnicities, also including a child in a wheelchair. I would recommend this book for children ages 4-10.
