The Milly, Molly series of books are written for children between the ages of four and eight. The stories relate the adventures of two little girls from different ethnic backgrounds (with their multi-cultural friends), and promote the acceptance of diversity and the learning of life skills.
The stories deal with the kinds of questions and trials that children face every day–and offer understanding in such matters as honesty, respect for others, difference, tenacity, exercise, cooperation, respect for nature, bullying, stranger danger, forgiveness, trustworthiness, responsibility, loyalty, loss and grief–and many other areas that are challenging to young children.
Their message is captured in the simple phrase: “We may look different but we feel the same.”
“Milly, Molly is a wonderful bunch of books. A real find.”
Robert Munsch: Noted author of bestselling children’s books.

“The underlying morals inherent within the texts are important for children of the
twenty-first century to take as their own... the language used to carry the stories is lively
and exciting for young readers... the language and style is simply good literature...
suitable as teaching texts in social studies or health programs anywhere in the world
where difference is an integral component of a community”
