Oliver the Onion doesn’t like himself. But when he decides to try on the “look” of a tempting-looking orange, he soon realizes that he cannot run away from who he is but should instead celebrate his uniqueness. Oliver Onion is written for 4- to 10-year-olds but the colorful illustrations and heartfelt message will appeal to children and adults alike. A discussion guide helps teachers and others engage children in thoughtful exploration of the book.
“An onion is a bulb, not the kind that gives a glow, but the kind you plant and grow.”
