This book was written because young children deserve stories that give them hope. Diversity in today's world and emotional intelligence are critical topics to bring to light and normalize. It is imperative that our children embrace themselves positively but more than anything that they are not afraid to do so for others as well. Eldie is a story of diversity in our everyday life and even our own families. It is a story that encourages socio-emotional development for young children who deserve to believe that childhood is a magical time. Our job as parents is not only to raise children that are strong for a hard world, but to also raise gentle and emotionally intelligent humans that will turn the world into a better, loving and more accepting place.
