Made by Raffi by Craig Pomranz and Margaret Chamberlain
Raffi is starting to realize that he\’s a little bit different than the other boys in his class. He doesn\’t care about being loud, and rowdy, and talking about sports. He would rather sit quietly with the teacher. And practicing this activity is exactly how he picks up his life\’s passion for creating clothing! And it all starts with the rainbow scarf that he knits for his dad and it turns into a cape for their school play. And after that, he\’s a hit.
Pomranz and Chamberlain have put Made by Raffi into the world when it is desperately needed. This book teaches kids that it\’s okay to be different. Being different doesn\’t mean that you\’re wrong or weird. In fact, we should embrace our differences because they make us who we are and may eventually lead to our life passions, like Raffi and his clothing design! And props to Raffi\’s parents for being wonderful, understand, and loving of their child and his barrier-breaking hobbies!
