So impressed by this sweet book. Everyone needs this kind of encouragement to celebrate their uniqueness!!!

First heard about Norman and met the author during a diversity and inclusion event in AZ. Setting aside my love for cats and their unique quirkiness, the adventures of Norman meeting different people, and doing different things - often marching to the beat of his own drummer - resonated very strongly with me. I have two children in middle school; my daughter (the youngest) is struggling with her own identity and eclectically amazing sense of individuality. The wonderful message in this book is one that should be shared by all. Children, teachers, parents ... all of them can learn a lesson from Norman!

I am so excited. I ordered the book. It came quickly. signed by author! Beautiful pictures, fun, easy to follow story. Gift for my granddaughter. We read the book through. I love the layout of the type. Reminds me of the Dick and Jane books. Clear, easy to read. These would be primer three. We love the message of the book. Thank you!
