This board book celebrates candy, friendship, and the differences that make us unique... "because the world is sweeter when everyone shines bright!"
In this book, various candies in a bowl are competing to see who's best:
Chocolates fight over who is most creamy.
Marshmallows and Marzipan each say they’re dreamy.
Taffy and Caramel tumble, tug, and stick,
while Butterscotch and Lemon Drop fall, roll, and kick.
When tensions rise and their contest turns sour, Peanut Butter Cup reminds the candies that they each have their own talent and flavor. In the end, the candies realize that their friendship is what matters most, and they agree to stop fighting.
This sturdy board book features rhyming text and colorful art from a New York Times bestselling illustrator. Full of humor and heart, it's a perfect gift for toddlers, and a great spark for discussions about diversity and inclusion.
