This is one of my favorite books to show the importance of diversity. The little girl in the story suddenly finds herself covered in multicolored stripes and in need of a confidence boost. This is a great book to teach students to embrace who they are and love who they are. A couple of activities to follow up with this book could be to complete a study on character traits, or on cause and effect.
