Where is it?
Summary

What if everybody were more thoughtful before they judged someone?

If you see someone in a wheelchair, you might think he or she couldn't compete in a race. But...you might be wrong. What if you see a child with no hair? Do you think she is embarrassed all the time? How about a kid who has a really hard time reading? Do you think that means he's not smart? You might think so. But...you might be wrong.

With clear prose and lighthearted artwork, this companion book to the bestseller What If Everybody Did That? explores the preconceived notions we have about the world and encourages kids to be more thoughtful.

School Library Journal Review
PreS-Gr 2--Keeping an open mind is a challenge for some kids, and adhering to a narrow viewpoint can limit their own experiences and impact their acceptance of people who seem different. This simple concept book shows how wrongheaded assumptions can be when it comes to trying unfamiliar foods or judging others with nontraditional learning styles, disabilities, or different physical attributes. Cheerful mixed media artwork presents individuals of varied backgrounds and ages. Speech bubbles are used to reveal children's initial prejudices, with page turns employed to indicate their revised opinions. The refrain that appears throughout is "What if everybody thought that?… They might be wrong." VERDICT This is a message-driven work but certainly a message that still needs to be delivered either in a classroom setting or during a parent-child teaching moment. A worthwhile acquisition.--Gloria Koster, formerly at West School, New Canaan, CT
