What's One of a Kind About

Publisher Summary

In this wry and witty picture book, an only child learns that in a classroom of multiples, individuality can be awesome.

All the kids in Lysander Singleton’s class are either twins or triplets, which means Lysander Singleton is the only “only child” at Twin Oaks Elementary. He tries to do what he can to fit in—making photocopies of himself, or attempting to play games with the other kids—though his efforts are usually met with unfortunate results. But when it comes time for the schoolwide Twindividuation competition, a series of events meant to encourage individuality, Lysander quickly realizes that being the only “only child” does have its advantages—and that being unique isn’t such a bad thing after all.

I like the message of this book, that being different or unique isn’t bad and might actually be advantageous. I do wish that the book would have also shown how twins can be unique, too, as some reading this might get the message that twins aren’t unique and might be disadvantaged in this area.
