This particular book, A Coat of Many Colors, is written as a song. The rhyming words flow easily from page to page as they tell the story of a little girl who was unaware of her poverty until she was criticized by her classmates. The discussions prompted by the bullying and lack of empathy by her peers will resonate with young listeners. The importance of seeing a situation from more than one perspective and the importance of surrounding oneself with a strong support system will be skills the students explore.
