In society black and brown children are severely under represented. The presence of black and brown children aren't seen as much as their peers in cartoons, toys, books and even in the classroom. In 2016, just 4 years ago, The Cooperative Children's Book Center at the University of Wisconsin, counted 427 books written or illustrated by people of color, and 736 books involving people of color. That equals to 22 percent of children's books. Children need to see themselves being represented in today's society. This book introduces Unique Unicorn. She is a brown unicorn that is trying to fit in with her new environment. However, she notices she is not quite like everyone else. This story holds a powerful message for children. Can Unique learn to fit in? Read to find out.
