Perfect Picture Book Friday
Coming in April is an interesting picture book about diversity: The Capybaras (Greystone Kids, 2021) by Alfredo Soderguit.
When the capybaras show up the chickens are not happy about these wild creatures. Rules are shared to keep the capybaras away. But when danger comes, the chickens change their minds. And the ending has a surprising twist, too.
I love how the chickens learn that different isn’t bad. I keep smiling at the end–you’ll have to read it to find out why.
The Spanish edition, Los Carpinchos, is a New York Public Library Best Book for Kids 2020.
