"Thanks to the generous donations from the Macomb Education Foundation, Altrusa, and Lincoln School PTO, every family at Lincoln School received a copy of the book, The Color of Friendship! The author and 1st grade teacher, Adrienne C. Graham, addressed the whole student body at the morning assembly on Monday, May 22, 2023. She shared the importance of being kind to others, even if they look or sound different than them. She also encouraged the students to read over the summer and share the book with others if they already have a copy."
I had the opportunity to lead a breakout session at the 2023 Pete Tarantola IAC Conference!

About The Color of Friendship
Violet Plum is a young girl, who lives in the fictional town of Indigoville. Violet loves her small town, and the fact that everyone there is a beautiful shade of purple. One day, Violet’s mom gets a new job, and the two of them must move to a new town, Honeyview Hills. Violet is skeptical about the move, especially when she learns that everyone in Honeyveiw Hills is an interesting shade of orange. Little Violet must adjust to her new town, and learn an interesting lesson in the process.
"This is such a great book, and it teaches such an awesome lesson! Way to go Adrienne!"
"The story is cute! I like the play on words of the title and how it’s showing you can move and make new friends just like your old ones!"
"Oh I absolutely love this book. LJ had so many questions! I think everyone should introduce this book to their kids especially with everything going on in the world right now."
