Excerpt

“We all have things that make us different from each other,” said Carmen the Cardinal. She had been embarrassed because her song was not as beautiful as the other birds. She just said “Tweet! Tweet!” Now she realized that her song made her special. She wasn’t like the other birds and that was ok. She was thankful for that.

Spike the Squirrel said, “Look at my notched -ear. I would try to hide it under hats. Then mom and dad told me that I should be proud. I was the only notched-eared squirrel in the Old Oak Woods.”

Uncle Feathers always said, “We should do our best to treat each other in a respectful way each day. Never make fun or say unkind words to anyone.”
