Agatha written and illustrated by Anna Pignataro (2015)

Agatha never quite fit in, even with her family. She had her mother pig’s ears and her father bear’s nose. So when she went to school, Agatha worked extra hard to make friends. Then one day her teacher told the class that each special in different ways like stars or snowflakes. Everyone started talking about how they were each special. But not, Agatha. She slipped away and hid so she wouldn’t have to talk. When her friends finally found her, they offered lots of way that Agatha was special. The one she liked the best, was that she was the best at being Agatha!


Agatha shows us how difficult it can be to be different, even when different is special. Sometimes kids don’t want to stand out for being different, they just want to fit in. Finding that balance between being different and being special can be hard for little ones to find. It’s kind of nice to have a friend like Agatha help you find your balance.
