Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun: Having the Courage to be Who You Are Book Companion
would be a wonderful way to introduce your students to the topic of celebrating their unique differences, even in the face of adversity.
Maria Dismondy wrote a wonderful story to show and teach children how important it is to have the courage to be different and to forgive others when they can’t understand this wonderful gift.
As the story begins, Lucy is a beautiful, little Italian girl who lives alone with her Papa Gino and loves to eat spaghetti in a hot dog bun each day for lunch. However, a lonely and grumpy classmate, Ralph, uses Lucy’s differences as a way to daily torment her until a defining moment occurs in which Lucy chooses courage and forgiveness over revenge.
