“Only One You”

“Only One You”

We read the book “Only One You” by Linda Kranz.  The story focuses on a fish named Adri whose parents decided it was time to share some wisdom with him.  Some of the wisdom shared was “Find your own way, you don’t have to follow the crowd.  Blend in when you need to, but stand out when you have the chance.”  At the end of the book Adri’s parents remind him how unique he is and encourage him to be himself and go make a difference in the world. 

The illustrations on each page are beautifully painted rockfish, so after the story and reminding each child just how unique and special they are, each child got to pick out a rock and decorate it!  We used markers so they would be ready to take home the same day and googly eyes were added!!  I encouraged the children to share the story with their families!!
