The Weird Animal Club
It’s OK to Be Different
About the Book
We all want to have friends. But sometimes, there’s something that makes us different from others. In many cases, that can make finding friends difficult.
But as author Christopher Knott-Craig, MD, shows in his book, The Weird Animal Club, that doesn’t have to be the case. All the characters you’ll meet have a physical difference of some kind. It causes them to feel lonely and sad, until they find other animal friends who are also different. They all become friends and learn that being different means they are special, and being different is good.
The Weird Animal Club teaches people of every age that differences don’t matter when it comes to making friends. Friendship happened for these animals, and it can happen for you.
