This is an absolutely terrific book, teaching us that each of us although very different has a talent that simply cannot be denied!

The students loved this story which teaches tolerance/acceptance for those who are different. It demonstrated that everyone has a talent/ability which is unique to the world. It included empathy skill development and self-concept as well. The students loved this story so much, that I will try to locate a hard copy for the school's library.

RECOMMENDED FOR A KID OF ANY AGE!! An egg, is deserately trying to be someone else but himself. Forced to leave his 'home' (the refrigerator) because of his imperfection, he looks for his place in the world. As he travels, he comes to an understanding that it is O.K. to be different. Instead of being ashamed of it he becomes proud.
