Perfectly Poppy by Tricia Stone-Shumaker is a delightful rhyming story about inclusivity and the differences that make you exceptional.
Poppy is unhappy because he has a crooked beak and others treat him differently. When his friend, Remi, the one-footed duck comes along, the two embark on a journey where they meet other exceptional animals.
Perfectly Poppy is the first book in Stone-Shumaker’s Poppy’s Adventure series. Stone-Shumaker is a speech language pathologist and advocate of inclusivity for all. She turns her passion into a sweet story for children that reminds them they are not alone and that they are extraordinary. What a fabulous message!
Kim Sponaugle provides the colorful artwork for Perfectly Poppy. I’ve always enjoyed Sponaugle’s mastery. In this story, not only does she use beautiful colors, she captures these characters’ emotions in their eyes, through their expressions, and in their mannerisms. This makes the story of the crooked beak chicken and those he meets extra special.
I look forward to many more Poppy adventures.
