Little Allies

Little Allies is a beautifully illustrated children’s story that inspires kids to be their best with everyone, especially for those who may need an ally from time to time.

As Ally navigates through her school day, she watches her classmates face bullying and discrimination. Ally realizes that they all want the same thing – to be accepted as they are. Ally learns an important lesson, brought to light by her teacher, that our differences make each of us unique and special, and that we can be an ally to others to help them navigate through life.
