  • Ideas for using this book in classroom or library – I could not myself think of how this book could particularly be used in a classroom but I did find this resource from Social Justice Picture Books which had some ideas.
  • Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it – I liked that each turn of the page reveals a different character (and many diverse characters) experience and think on “love.”
