Happy to Be Nappy and Other Stories of Me (2004) Review
(More customer reviews)Real kids, real diversity, and real emotions instill respect for what we all share in common and our individual differences. The best parts are the monologues from children who are incredibly aware of themselves as individuals, how they are different, and what that means to them. I am from the generation where "Free to Be You and Me" (which focused mostly on the commonalities and differences between men and women) was shown in all local public schools. In addition to sex role differences, this video takes on issues of race, size, disablity, language barriers, blindness, and other individual characteristics which are explained by real children. This video is appropriate for ages 3 through adult and will promote an understanding, tolerance and respect for peoples' differences.
