Blurb from goodreads:

"It is your uniqueness that's really the seed. Embrace it! Exploit it! And you will Succeed."

Little Jimmy is a small guy with a BIG mission... help people realize how special they really are.

Why is everyone trying so hard to fit in when there is so much uniqueness to celebrate?

Jump in and follow the miniature ringmaster through his circus-inspired world of weird, where normal is ordinary, and ordinary is boring.

In these fun-filled pages you'll discover what makes you unique and why being different is actually cool.

So hurry, hurry! Come one, come all! Step right up. Kids of all ages, shapes and sizes are welcome and special in Little Jimmy's wondrous and wacky world.

Read this book and prepare to be amazed at what you see in the mirror the next time you take a look!

Steph's Thoughts:

I could not pass up this book when it came across for review. I thought it had a good message and would be perfect for my little guy.

Liam and I sat on his bed and read it together. He was transfixed by the pictures. They are big and bright and managed to peel him away from Netflix (Hard to do sometimes). The font is large, which is something I like in a children’s book. Some of the words were a little complex for my 4 year old but the rhyme and flow kept us going.

As a mom, I loved the message that this book conveys to kids. Being different is OK! We need more books like this for kids. I asked Liam if he liked this book and he nodded his head yes and said “Good book, again please”. Yes, he is a man of few words.

This book will definitely be finding a place on his bookshelf.
