This is a great story about a young girl who makes hubcap flowers for her dad but gets made fun of when the school bus drops her brother off at the junk pile. They are mean to her until the bus is in trouble and she uses her knowledge of cars to help out. The kids stop making fun of her after that and instead become her friend and play in the junk pile with her. ( )

For use in grades pre-k-3. Lady Borton illustrates Jamie's experience with pursuing the use of imagination despite being made fun of for interesting junk creations. A great tool to teach bullying and forgiveness. ( )
