Hummus or peanut butter and jelly? A delightful, contemporary tale, whimsically illustrated with expressive art, this story tells how a minor difference of opinion between best friends became a school-wide lesson in tolerance and acceptance.
“Finally, Lily got up the courage to speak. ‘Would you like to try a bite of my peanut butter and jelly? Salma grinned.” When the two friends bravely swap sandwiches, the result surprises (and includes) everyone. A child's-eye view of cultural diversity, with inspiration for children to try something new.
Written by Rania Al Abdullah, Queen of Jordan, this story is based on her personal experience. A great springboard for discussion. Hardcover, 32 pages. Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award.
