NEW YORK - s4story -- HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT   - Etty Burk, an organizational psychologist who works with teams and organizations, has published a new children's book titled Aaron The Different: A Story of Courage, Belonging, and Acceptance aimed at teaching children and adults about diversity and inclusion.

The book follows the story of an eight-year-old boy named Aaron who is different from everyone else in his country called Premium on the planet Astron. Aaron's small, round, and green appearance sets him apart from his tall, perfectly purple family and friends, and his classmates tease him and won't play with him. The book takes readers on a journey with Aaron, as he befriends strange and wonderful creatures, the sunmoonies and myrtledockers, who live in the forest and teach him the secrets of the mysterious underground caves and tunnels. When disaster strikes during a school field trip, Aaron is faced with the challenge of his life. Something happens that changes everything, showing Aaron the value of his true inner strength, boosting his confidence, and inspiring the people of Premium forever.
