Dilly the penguin hatches with only one leg, as as with so many children, her parents are absolutely delighted with her. Despite only having one leg and having to hop and find other ways to get around, Dilly manages to keep up with the other young penguins in her own ways. Though the other parents are concerned when their children begin copying her movements, they all applaud when Dilly manages to save the day.
Elizabeth Dale’s Delightfully Different Dilly is a sweet book for toddlers and preschoolers about embracing our differences and accepting each other for who we are. It is also a reminder to parents that children are much more accepting. We can learn a lot from one another.
