C.J. loves Todd Parr’s book It’s Okay to Be Different. C.J. also loves playing on my iPad (which he calls “his iPad,” much to the annoyance of his brother). So, imagine how much he loves the new It’s Okay to Be Different app. “The team at Storypanda Books worked with Parr’s publisher Little, Brown Books for Young Readers to add a layer of interactivity to this beloved title. The ability to select different characters, clothing, and props on each page means kids can customize the book to match their own life experiences. In doing so, the message feels more personal to each and every child allowing them to identify closely with certain instances where they may have felt ‘different.’” Download the app here: (https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/id521512463).
