A multicultural family story that celebrates kindness and differences

Lila is excited for her cousins Takeo and Rosie to visit. They're going to ride bikes, paint, and camp together But when the cousins arrive, everything's wrong: Rosie and Takeo are better painters than Lila, have skateboards instead of bikes, and don't want to camp outside. Lila is terribly disappointed until the cousins make her a surprise: a big banner for their "best cousin" Lila This sensitive story about insecurity, hosting, and friendship reminds children that negative thoughts and anxiety over exclusion don't always translate to reality.
