About the Book.
In a world where we all too often feel pressured to fit in and conform, Neither by Airlie Anderson is a refreshing, touching story that celebrates the differences in all of us. In light of the current cultural climate, where debates continue on gender definitions, NEITHER is a timely and topical book for the preschool set. This light-handed picture book teaches young readers that not everyone is a “this” or a “that,” some people are “neither.”
About the Story.
Once upon a time, there were two kinds: this and that. Until … HONK! When you’re neither, where do you fit in? In the Land of This and That, there are only two kinds: blue bunnies and yellow birds. But one day a funny green egg hatches, and a little creature that’s not quite a bird and not quite a bunny pops out. It’s neither!
Neither tries hard to fit in, but its bird legs aren’t good for jumping like the other bunnies, and its fluffy tail isn’t good for flapping like the other birds. It sets out to find a new home and discovers a very different place, one with endless colors and shapes and creatures of all kinds.
