“When the topic of discrimination comes up (if it hasn’t already), don’t bother trying to define it. Just take your children to Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical“

Inspired by the events of The Little Rock 9, Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical serves as a colorful history lesson for children, reminding them that our individual differences make us awesome, not outcasts.
8-year-old Lily Polkadot who just moved to the “Squares Only” small town of Rockaway is the first Polkadot in an all Square school. From daily bullying to segregated drinking fountains, Lily’s quest for acceptance seems hopeless until she meets Sky, a shy Square boy whose curiosity for her unique polkadot skin blooms into an unexpected pal-ship.
