I’m a Unicorn with One Red Wing
A book about bullying
I’m A Unicorn With One Red Wing is a rhyming picture book for ages 3-10 that takes you on a journey through the eyes of Molly, a unicorn that gets bullied just because she looks different. When one of the bullies falls and gets hurt, Molly is quick to help. With a surprise ending, see how a simple act of kindness changes everything for her, and her bullies.
Hi! My name is Molly. I’m a kid unicorn who likes to run around the fields, play in the forest, dance, daydream, and rhyme! I get bullied and teased a lot though because I look different than the others. They’re shiny and bright with two perfect wings, and I have just one wing, that’s a bright red color.
“I loved Molly’s individual beauty and how although she felt sadness for the treatment she had received, she didn’t chase the others for their approval and just kept being who she was. Then when an opportunity came where she was able to help someone who had once rejected her, Molly was still willing to help the hurt unicorn because of who SHE was. It’s a great lesson to people of all ages. Sometimes people shut down and aren’t willing to help the one that hurt them when they come around but Molly didn’t hang on to that. Great character trait and life lesson for all ages! There are lots of little lessons that can be gleened and one for me was… continue to show up as who you are and don’t let the hurtful actions of others diminish your sparkle!
Ages 3 - 10
“Beautifully written and illustrated children’s book, but really for all ages! Wonderful message about self-love, kindness and service to others, and ultimately living by The Golden Rule. I could truly identify with the main character Molly and what it’s like to be different growing up. She exemplifies choosing love over anger and hate and we can all learn from that!”
