Being different doesn't have to mean missing out!

Meet Otto, a young Kernel who’s been dreaming about the day he would pop. But what happens when Pop Day finally arrives, and things don’t go as planned? When all the Kernels pop except for Otto, he's left wondering what went wrong. Otto returns to his jar, alone, until a delicious smell leads to an exciting discovery. Perhaps Otto didn’t need to pop to do everything he’d always dreamed of!

From the award-winning creative team behind When Pencil Met Eraser, Pop! is the perfect story for anyone who has ever felt "different" and reminds us that we don't have to be like everyone else to enjoy life and reach our goals. Follow Otto's journey and discover how differences don't have to hold you back, and that it's okay to be exactly as you are.

Kids will take a journey of imagination and growth as they learn about:

  • Embracing differences
  • Being comfortable with who you are
  • Not letting obstacles stand in your way

  • Pop! is a fun, read-aloud picture book perfect for:
  • Kids ages 3 and up
  • Social and emotional learning (SEL) curriculum or for anyone wanting to teach about differences, being yourself, and self-acceptance
  • Parents, families, teachers, librarians, and classroom story times for preschool, kindergarten, and elementary students

    For any child who struggles with being different

    I got this for my daughter who struggles to keep up with her peers due to several learning disabilities. This was the perfect story to remind her that she is perfect as she is and that she can still have goals and achieve what she wants in life. Thank you for writing this book.
