A young scientist's assistant is prepared to show readers exactly what "normal" is by observing Norman the orangutan in his natural habitat and behavior. It isn't long before our young scientist learns that Norman is anything but normal.
Today I have an artwork reveal for you from the picture book and it is one of my favorite illustrations from the story. As you can see, Norman is not so interested in what is normal.

Normal Norman is a wonderful picture book to share with students of any age. It celebrates what makes us unique (and maybe a little weird) because as Norman enthusiastically shows us, normal is boring.
