I Don't Care

A New York Times bestselling author and two Caldecott Honorees share their delight in the little things that set two friends apart and the big things that bring them together.

I really don't care what you think of my hair,
Or my eyes or my toes or my nose,
I really don't care what you think of my boots,
Or if you don't like my clothes. . .
Mostly I care that you're you and I'm me
And I care that we're us and we're we.

This rhythmic, rhyming text by award-winning author Julie Fogliano celebrates the similarities and differences between two unlikely best friends.

Illustrated by two recent Caldecott Honorees, each depicting one of the characters, Molly Idle and Juana Martinez-Neal.
