In the book It’s Alright To Look Different, the message is about accepting others no matter how different they seem. This topic is so critical, as more and more children are being bullied due to the increase in technology use. Nearly 43 percent of kids have been bullied online, and cyberbullying is now the single largest type of bullying around. In addition, the majority of kids are bullied because of how they look. According to TeenSafe, 72 percent of children are cyberbullied because of their looks. This can be anything from race, height, weight, hair style, clothing, or whether or not someone wears glasses. Reading books like It’s Alright To Look Different helps to instill a sense of compassion and open-mindedness in our children starting at a young age.
