People Are Like Lollipops

Synopsis

There was once an old man with great wisdom who lived in the Land of Salizar . . .

The wise man discovered the key to getting along with other people, no matter how different they may seem. He’s happy to tell you the secret! (Ages 3-7)

When children first start school, they begin to notice that all people don't all look, or dress, or talk alike. With simple words and delightful illustrations that shine a light on those differences, People Are Like Lollipops helps kids understand that in spite of all these superficial differences, when it comes right down to it, all people are just people. And that's something to smile about!

People Are Like Lollipops features Read-It-To-Me audio narration and music (included in the iBook edition for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or available as a free MP3 download for the Kindle and print editions).

About the Book

Annie Fox orginally wrote and illustrated People Are Like Lollipops when she was Ann Larris, an undergraduate at Cornell University. Published in 1971 by Holiday House at a time when people were just beginning to celebrate diversity, People Are Like Lollipops was read several times on the Captain Kangaroo Show (by the Captain himself!). With Annie’s blessing (“I’m not an artist!”), Electric Eggplant is thrilled to publish this reimagined edition complete with Brian Narelle’s whimsical illustrations.

. . . makes it easy for children to realize we are all just people and people are so easy to love even if we look different . . .
Rebecca Moore, Guidance Counselor, 6–8th grade
