A young girl is being picked on for things she figure are food attributes that make her who she is. So she just can't figure out why her differences are wrong in his eyes.
Moral: View a situation from more than one perspective, seeing the viewpoint of another person

This book is so cute! Her and her grandfathers weird meal choice gets her some judgement at school, but she learns that it doesn't matter!

Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun: Having the Courage to Be Who You Are is a wonderful story about a girl who is very different from other people. As she goes through her day, her peers ridicule her for being different. Lucy, the main protagonist, struggles with a bully who picks on her poofy curly hair, but she “kills him with kindness” like her grandfather taught. At the end of the story Lucy manages to stay nice to Ralph and they end up understanding each other better. This book helps to develop personality by allowing children to recognize their own values and to open their mind to other people’s values. The illustrations for this book are very realistic and beautiful. The fir in context of the text and is appropriate for children ages 5-7.
This book was a personal book that Kourtney Maas brought into class for the personality book share. She got it from Amazon.com ( )
