A cute and funny story about accepting those around you for who they are. The art is colorful, and it makes you want to jump in and play with all of the silly unicorns.

Funny, really exuberant illustrations. Unicorns are celebrating unicorn day until they realize there's an imposter horse joining in- instead of the expected sending away they embrace & include him in the celebration
Lots of fun details in the illustrations

Unicorn Days sound like so much fun! And if everyone's allowed to join, all the better. This sweet story with colorful illustrations and a delightful rhyme has a great message about inclusion. Plus there's glitter!

Young kids will like the bright colors and just plain fun of 'UNICORN DAY' but I think whoever labeled it as appropriate for ages up to 8 is dreaming of just selling more books to those 2+ years beyond its audience

The friendship and yes, tolerance (ugh, that word) is all here but the rhyming is often painfully tortured. I think children are by nature inclusive, simply because at that age they love making and having friends. They only learn otherwise from hearing opinions of adults in their lives. At least these fun unicorns are polite enough not to "fart glitter" as in 'How to Catch a Unicorn'.

Once again, I am thankful that KCLS allows me to read children's books before I buy them for my grandchildren.

Apart from a little issue with the formatting making the book an odd read at times, this book is fantastic. Kids will love this story full of unicorns and glitterfights simply because those things exist. Adults might get something out of it too, though, thanks to the story's obvious but not abrasive LGBTQ+ message of inclusivity often seen in Pride Parade culture, letting Allies join in the fun and celebration.
