Why Am I Blue? A Story About Being Yourself

Written by Kalli Dakos and Illustrated by Viviana Garofoli

The Blue Frog looked at his reflection in the water and asked, "Why am I blue?" The Green Frog didn't know. Dandelion had no answer. And Fish? No idea either! Could there be an answer to this question? The Blue Frog is on a quest to find out! Eventually, he comes across a simple but profound explanation. Includes a Note to Parents and Caregivers by Gayle E. Pitman, PhD, that discusses how children experience differences throughout childhood and how adults can guide children toward an understanding and acceptance of their own as well as others' differences and similarities.
