Meet Putih (Poo-tee) the Traveling Pelican!

Putih's on an adventure into the unknown. She's traveling through the woods -- yikes!-- in search of a lake so she can see her reflection for the first time after being teased about having a big chin.

Putih meets different animals who befriend her along the way, and who each point out the similarities they share rather than their differences. Putih's new friends appreciate her unique quality and help her to see the beauty in her reflection.

This is a great book for kids ages 3-8, teaching important lessons like being a good friend, learning to build self-esteem and confidence, learning about diversity and acceptance, and the power of our words

What a sweet and timely story. It is true that no matter how different we may seem from each other, there is always common ground on which to build friendship and find love!

What a beautiful story! In my work with children, I see that they often fall into the trap of comparison with other children and feel compelled to conform to the crowd. This book is a beautiful story of not only self-acceptance, but also celebration of differences! The message couldn’t be more timely. Highly recommend this book for all children!
— Debra G.
What a charming book with beautiful lessons for both children and parents alike! I love the spirit of accepting others and ourselves that “Putih the Pelican” teaches us! I have yet to find a book like this one, definitely my “go to gift” for the little ones in my life!
— Joy M.
What a sweet lesson this book holds! As Putih goes on her journey of self-discovery, she encounters many characters different from herself. In the end, you learn that our differences can actually help bring us together! Loved talking through this with my 3 year old son this morning. 💙

I appreciate the story of Putih the Traveling Pelican because its message to embrace our God-given features is different than any of the other books I have read to my 3-year-old. This book encourages children that our differences do not isolate us, but serve as a bridge to connect with those who are not like us. The illustrations are fun and captivating, and we look forward to following Putih on her adventures!
— Kasey S.
Putih and her friends do a great job of reminding us that it’s our differences that make life beautiful! I highly recommend to any parent or teacher in search of teaching such an important lesson!
— Jadah B.
Putih the Pelican is such a lovable character and the illustrations add so much charm to this sweet story. Putih is teased at the beginning of the story but meets other characters who embrace and appreciate her. I loved reading this book to my son. He loved looking at the illustrations and the message of the story is timeless.
— Laura R.
