Twinkle Twinkle dear Todd Parr
How I wonder what you are
We love your words; we love your style
They make us laugh; they make us smile
Twinkle Twinkle dear Todd Parr
We’re so lucky, whatever you are

Note: Lots of things are OK in Todd Parr’s world – adoption, gay families, world peace…and putting fish in your hair (I’m coming around to that last one). Todd’s illustrations are bright, bold and colorful, which may be why kiddos like his work. Plus the text and pictures in It’s Okay are very simple, making it a great book for kiddos to start to read on their own.

All of his books are very “Up with People” which is why in our house, we’re very Up with Todd Parr.

(Of course, there’s also this take and this take on “Up With People” – simultaneously cynical and hopeful.)
