This is a short, beautiful book about a poor, small town girl who claims to have one hundred dresses in her closet, yet every day wears the same one. The girls in class only notice her when they are teasing her, until one day, she stops showing up to school. The thing I love about this book is that it is told from the point of view of the popular girls who tease her. A great book for discussion of the golden rule and bullying– perfect for a read-aloud.

I remember my fourth grade teacher reading this book to us. Then, years later, I read it to my daughter. It's a wonderful book to read with your children & let them know we're all different. There's no reason to put down someone else just because they're different -- find out what makes them unique & build that into a strength!

Quietly told - which adds to the impact of how badly the girls have acted toward someone different from them.
