Acceptance is my Superpower
A children’s Book about Diversity and Equality
We all have Superpowers. One of them is our ability to accept ourselves and others.
We are all different. And whilst children are often wonderful at accepting differences easily, there are times when a lack of understanding can result in hurtful words or actions. As adults, it is our responsibility to teach children that differences are not flaws but our, in fact, our super powers.
Lisa, a primary school student with a love of singing, learns just that in ‘Acceptance is my Superpower’ when a cruel comment from someone she regards as a friend leads her down a path of discovery of the true meaning of diversity and how it can be applied to everyone

Nicely delievered concept
Really well written book!
This book has a wonderful message! I bought this to read to my one year old son and it is a bit lengthy for him at this time.
Excellent book for any child
Great book that teaches to appreciate others, value the differences and accept people without judgement. A must-have in any child’s collection, highly recommend
Loved reading this book with my kids. The language is easy to understand. Helped to start the conversation about diversity before my kids go to JK this year.
Great book, awesome for kids going to Jk or school
I really enjoyed reading this with my son. The content is great, the illustrations are fantastic and I feel that this reinforces the values we teach at home
I will use this book for teaching kindergarten children about the acceptance of others and that we treat everyone with dignity, kindness and respect. I like how the pictures reflect diversity. This book will promote dialouge amongst young children to share ideas to greater understand and appreciate others around them and no matter who you are, you are capable of many things.
Easy, meaningful and colorful
Plain language explains a very sensitive subject like bulling in the school. And special thanks for the exercise in the end: “things I love about myself.” This book teaches to look into our unique differences and accept them. And same accept other differences.
Good quality paper. This book could be awesome to read in a class, when teacher explains and then all work together.
I would recommend this book for sure.
Thank you so much Alicia for the beautiful message, your writing and the art work. I bought all of your 6 books to prepare my yoga children’s 10 weeks program. I am so grateful to be able to share your books with the kiddos 💜🧘🏽♀️🙏🏾🇨🇦
Great children’s book about diversity
The book is a good way for my kids to start learning about diversity and acceptance. It has many pictures and highlights important words for children to learn how different people can be. I recommend this book.
Very cute with a great message!
This is a great book for young kids! Highly recommend!
It’s very useful book
I bough the book that my kids understand that everyone can’t be the same and we need to respect and be polite with everyone. The book is colorful and very careful to explain the word “the diversity”. If parents explain to kids the meaning of this word we will have less problem and bulling.
I love this book! It’s explaining that everyone is different and it’s a beauty of individuality.It has very good examples which helps every child to understand that individuality and diversity is their superpower. Also at the end of the book a little exercise of writing six things down that you love about yourself. A good exercise to do together!
Book for sharing with children
I liked the art & dialog for the most part. The problem situation was typical for the age group. The illustration of concepts (eg diversity) were clear but overdone with exaggeration at times. Overall it was a good book to use for teaching & could lead to followup discussion.
learning how to be different
Everything can’t always be the same it’s ok to be different and look different do not bully someone or make fun of someone because they have a different look from everybody else it’s very hurtful this book teaches me that it’s ok to have things that make u look different from other and that’s ok
Clients like it!
A HIDDEN POWER
This lovely picture book teaches elementary school children two important lessons. First, we are all unique and that makes us special. Second, our differences can be accepted as strengths (superpowers). When we unite to share our special traits, we make all of us stronger.
The rhymes are sharp and fun to read. The multicultural illustrations celebrate physical differences like hair, eye and skin color. Deafness, and physical handicaps can be turned into unique talents like using sign language and playing on teams with disabilities. By talking openly with others, bullying can be eliminated. What was once seen as a weakness may become a strength or “superpower.”
Highly suggested as a read-aloud book for group discussion.
Important message for children about diversity
I read Kindness is my Superpower and Breathing is my Superpower and they’re both great books for children, so I was happy to read this book as well.
Acceptance is My Superpower is about a girl who wears glasses and gets upset one day when a friend teases her about wearing them. When she goes home, her parents explain to her that we are all different in our own way and the world would be a boring place if we were all the same. Our differences can be from our clothes to our looks and the subjects we like and the the things we like to do, but it shouldn’t matter.
This is a wonderful way for children to learn about acceptance. It teaches them that it’s okay to be different and that we should accept people the way they are.
Book review for “Acceptance is my Superpower“
This is a wonderful book about acceptance!
Lisa is seven years old and was teased by a classmate because she wears glasses. She tells her Mum that she wants to be like the other kids. Thank goodness for smart mothers! Her Mum says, “We all have our differences making the world an interesting place.“ Both her parents help her to look at differences. From different types of physical characteristics to different types of fruit!
The book goes on to explore with Lisa and her family how people are different, “ We all have our differences,” Mum said, “it’s what makes us so unique from the way we look and think to the languages we speak.”
Physical diversity is explored. There’s Uncle Jimmy who uses a wheelchair. Grandma talks with sign language using her hands. A friend who is adopted. All are examples of physical diversity.
I love how her Dad explains, “To accept each other‘s differences,” Dad said, “Is called diversity, and it means we must treat everyone with respect and courtesy.“
This book has lovely illustrations that add to the storyline. I like how the writing of the story rhymes! This book is pleasant to look at and fun to read! Best of all the lesson is learned about differences and diversity. “…acceptance is our superpower and together we will grow.”
Be sure to check the very back of the book for a little exercise of writing six things down that you love about yourself. A good exercise for both the adult and child to do together!
Great book for kids
My 3 and 2 year old loved this book. They’re used to drawing parallels from their reads and asking questions, and this book has plenty of lovely opportunities for this. Lovely little book.
Very nice and lovely read
Very Lovely book to read with my children
Nice book for growing up children
Nice book about important things that kids should be taught nowadays.
Shipped very quickly. Nice quality lightweight book.
A must have book!
Alicia Ortego’s books are one of the most amazing books I’ve ever read. It is all well thought. The rhyming wasn’t forced.
The illustrations are great, beautiful and very engaging.
I highly recommend this to everyone. Children (and even adults) will learn lots of important lessons in her books that we all could apply on our everyday lives. Suitable for all ages.
A lovely book which is essential for children to read and apply
Alicia Ortego has written a series of seven Superpower books. All are delightful, easy, and fun for children to read. All teach them lessons they should learn and apply. Wouldn’t the world be a far better place, a happier place, if we recognized that diversity is good because it makes life interesting, makes us think, and helps us improve? Scholars have pointed out that the Hebrew Bible begins with the creation of just one man and one woman to emphasize that we are all descendants from the same source. Alicia Ortego’s beautiful “Acceptance is my Superpower” makes this and other points clear for children.
