    One thought on “Odd Velvet”

    1. This story was absolutely lovely. I loved how "odd" influenced typical. There is a beauty that comes with our uniqueness.

    2. This is a good story about being yourself and being tolerant of those who are different. It's also a cautionary tale about excess materialism.It's a good book to read to children. Our girls enjoyed watching the story on the Tumblebooks website. (tumblebooks)

    3. Velvet is different from the other kids. She dresses different and she acts different. They all think she is odd. They are polite but keep their distance. But slowly, Velvet begins to win them over. A great book for talking about differences and accepting others. I don't particularly like the illustrations with their too big heads.

    4. A great lesson for kids and adults to always be kind to others no matter how odd they might be and that it is okay to be different. It is our differences that make us special. Loved reading this to my 4th graders at the beginning of the school year.

    5. 1. Rating: 52. A book review from Kirkus Reviews says, "Two newcomers celebrate oddity and making do with less in this story of a girl named Velvet. Unlike her peers, she wears hand-me-downs, carries her lunch in a brown paper bag, owns only eight crayons, and brings a milkweed pod instead of a doll for Show-and-Tell. Gradually her differences are seen as advantages when she wins a class drawing contest and successfully entertains her classmates at an innovative birthday party. It's unfortunate [...]

    6. Odd Velvet is another favorite children’s book of mine. The book asks readers to embrace Odd Velvet and explores how being “you” is the most important thing one can do. Odd Velvet likes eating butter sandwiches and carrots and wears second-hand clothes. She doesn't laugh at the same things other children laugh at and she has bright orange hair and freckles. Odd velvet is a marvelous character because she tells children it is grand to be different, and that individuality is a gift. There ar [...]

    7. Velvet is different than the rest of the girls in her class- she doesn't have a new dress for the beginning of school or dolls to show for show and tell. However, when she wins the drawing contest using only her 8 crayons- the class takes notice! Many of the girls go to her birthday party and realizes Velvet is just like them; she likes to dress like a Princess and wear crowns too! Velvet is "odd" but that's okay and her classmates realize this. This is a great book for any little girl that may [...]

    8. I absolutely love this children's picture book! It shows a little girl who though she doesn't fit in, doesn't change herself. The kids around her start to change their opinion of her and what makes her odd becomes what makes her so interesting. It makes being different not just acceptable but special (in a good way). And Violet never thinks about changing herself to fit in. The message is clear and simple. It is one of my favorite children's books. I discovered it while volunteering in the eleme [...]

    9. I absolutely love this book! Odd Velvet is about a little girl named Velvet who is not exactly like the other children in her class. Velvet doesn't have all the "normal" things the other students have. No one wants to be her partner. No one wants to be different the way Velvet is different. But as the year goes on, Velvet's classmates get to really know her and they find out that Velvet isn't so odd after all. I think this would be a great book to read aloud to students, so that they can learn t [...]

    10. Mom: I really liked this book. It spoke to me as I have always been one to dance to the beat of my own drum and, it has been much appreciated by my family and friends. I loved the illustrations and one of the best moments for me is when she was swinging on her swing from the tree in her backyard.11 year old review: "I really enjoyed it. The illustrations were nice. I like the plot."6 year old review: "I loved it! When the book was finished I wanted to have it read, over and over and over again!" [...]

    11. At the begginning of the year, velvets classmates think she is odd and noone wants to be her friend. As the year goes on, they realize that being unique is what makes Velvet so awesome. I liked this book because it is very likely that there will always be an odd-ball in the class that noone likes. But, as the year goes on, feelings will change and everyone will realize that student is actually the opposite. It is so true.

    12. Velvet is very odd. She does not like to play with dolls like every other girl. Velvet brings a milkweed pod for show and tell at school. She likes to collect rocks. No ever chooses Velvet for partner play. No one walks home with her after school. No one wants to be different the way Velvet is different. Velvet is a good story for kids to show that everyone is not the same. People can be different.

    13. Velvet is very odd. She does not like to play with dolls like every other girl. Velvet brings a milkweed pod for show and tell at school. She likes to collect rocks. No ever chooses Velvet for partner play. No one walks home with her after school. No one wants to be different the way Velvet is different. Velvet is a good story for kids to show that everyone is not the same. People can be different

    14. The illustrations in this book were very well done. They had a different look to them going along with the theme of the book. I liked how the book expressed a story that people are different but that doesn't mean they don't need friends and "different" isn't a bad thing. I would use this book when discussion about diversity among the world and how it makes our country unique.

    15. Odd Velvet is extremely odd. She does many things most kids her age doesn't do and she really doesn't get accepted by her classmates. But once Odd Velvet's birthday comes around and her classmates learn that she is actually just interestingly peculiar, they fall in love with just who Velvet is. All while she stayed her odd self.

    16. This is a great story to show students how everyone is different and odd in their own way. However, you need to be brave and be yourself to show other people how your uniqueness is a huge asset to their life. This is a great book to read at the beginning of a school year to build community amongst children.

    17. I liked this book because it is a way of showing children that it is okay to be who you are. While people may call Velvet odd throughout the whole book, by the end they understand being who you are is okay. Children need to learn at a young age that it is okay to be who you are, even if your friends don't accept it.

    18. different can be (and) usually is special. A fun story about being true to yourself; not worrying about being like everyone else. Velvet taught the kids it is the person who makes something great, not things. Velvet exposed her classmates to cool and unusual things for which they realized, in the end, were cool as well.

    19. Wide-eyed grins and peppy, skewed perspectives bring to life an upbeat school yard story that provides a reassuring example of independent thought, acceptance and unwavering self-worth.Listen to our chat about this book on our JustOneMoreBook Children's Book Podcast:justonemorebook/2007/1

    20. Velvet is unlike any of her classmates. They make fun of all the ways that she is different until the classmates start to realize that maybe Velvet has a lot more to offer than just her 'weirdness.'This is a great book to teach children to value everyone for what they are able to bring to the table and to not judge.

    21. This picture book follows a young girl named Velvet who seems weird at first but eventually the other kids get to know her and find her so much fun! This book is meant for primary grades and would be a great "hook" on a lesson about not judging people before you get to know them.

    22. This book is one of many books that has nestled itself onto picture book shelves at bookstores throughout the country. I like this one because the illustrations are captivating and Velvet doesn't have to change to win her friends. It's a staple for any kid's bookshelf, I say.

    23. Read this for pink day/anti-bullying day. Favourite written response by a child: "If I was called odd, that would be okay. I like to be odd. Being unique is better than being the same as everyone else."

    24. Great story about a girl trying to fit in. She seems well "odd" and likes things that kids make fun of her for. In the end the other children warm up to her and she isnt so odd after all. Great story for everyone to enjoy especially those who might feel left out.

    25. An "it's okay to be different" story where the moral isn't shoved down your throat. A little hard to explain the sarcasm when three girls bring dolls to show and tell and "save the day," but that's my failing, so otherwise, quite nice.

    26. Velvet is not like the other kids at school and some of the kids poke fun at the funny things she says and does. As time passes the things she says and does aren't so funny, but actually start to make sense.

    27. Velvet is such a strange girl, but I love her for that. I will use this book over and over to discuss acceptance and being comfortable in you own skin. I think any girl, at any age, can relate to this book.

    28. This was an intersting story about a very different sort of girl. The other children clearly notice how "odd" she is and treat her differently. The pictures match the style of the book, in its unique way. -acceptance-understanding-making use of what you have-"old fashioned fun"-school

    29. I really love this book since it teaches children that everyone is different and do not mind how do we look or dress. This book would be good to read aloud to the students so they can realize that each person is different and unique.
