No Matter What...We All Belong

­Tiger Tales. Jan. 2023. 10p. Board $9.99. ISBN 9781664350632.
PreS-K–Die-cuts in various shapes offer children puffy glittery glimpses of the rainbow that brings this book to a close, but along the way, the uplifting message more than cheers them on: “No matter what the music,/ no matter what our name,/ no matter what our language.../ our smiles are all the same!” It’s a message worth shouting, it’s chantable, and it will have story hour attendees begging for rereads.
VERDICT With a diverse crew of children of so many abilities and in such an array of cultural garb, this book wins. We all belong.
