About the Book

Often it’s hard to be different from others—to look different, to have different abilities, or to feel emotions in a different way from everyone else. It’s important to accept all people, though, no matter how much they might not be like you.

In Rocking Chair Stories, a wide variety of people and animals experience what it is like to be unlike everyone around them. Brian deals with children who are making fun of the color of his skin. Sara is blind from birth and discovers the world through her other senses. Carolyn is an acrobat who is scared of heights, and Doug is a bully who must find a better way to behave. Charlie the peacock has a plain brown tail, while Pinky the pig has two tails—one more than most pigs! As they make their way in the world, the things that make them stand out from others also make them unique and special.

This collection of children’s stories explores the lives of people and animals who are not the same as those around them and helps teach the importance of accepting those differences.
