Lucy knows how to do everything. She knows how to eat with a spoon and fork, play the xylophone, paint elephants - and lots more besides! All her friends ask her for help if they need to know the right way to do something. When Toshi arrives, Lucy thinks he can't do anything properly at all. He eats differently, plays strange music, and he definitely can't paint elephants. She can barely hide her frustration. And when she finally tries to teach Toshi the right way to do things, she learns a very important lesson herself. A simple, funny tale about understanding, respecting and enjoying our differences.

A lovely story about having your own strengths while still admiring the different talents of others. If anyone in your family needs a lesson on respecting others, getting along despite your differences, or just making new friends from faraway places, this is a great start. Perfect sized illustrations for reading aloud in storytime. Older kids might also enjoy an extension activity, making paper stars or origami cranes like the characters in the book.
