Journey to Appleville: We Are Different, But We Are the Same: Children’s Series Teaches Power of Diversity, Acceptance


Looking for a children’s book that will teach about diversity? Journey to Appleville is the book to read! This is a wonderful book by Veronica Appleton. 

Veronica S. Appleton, multicultural author of new children’s book, Journey to Appleville, wants to spread awareness of the importance of cultural representation and acceptance. Her beautifully illustrated children’s book, the first of the Appleville Books series, showcases the importance of friendship and acceptance for kids everywhere.

Journey to Appleville follows six kids from a local neighborhood with a common goal—to go to Appleville, overcome their fears, and receive a Golden Apple from the Appleville Fairy. Embark on their quest and follow Kenan, Tu-Tu, Pedro, Liu-Liu, Lizzy, and Cassie as they make their way to accomplishing their goals and finding the Appleville Fairy.

Children will relate to these characters and will also learn a few powerful messages about friendship and acceptance! I think one of the most important lessons a child can learn is to be kind to others and this book reinforces this important lesson.
