Agate By: Joy Morgan Dey and Nikki Johnson
Agate thinks he is not a good moose, and that there is no use for him. He is very sad, but loves his friends and thinks that all of them are very special for different reasons. We get to meet all these colorful friends like, Diamond the giraffe, Emerald the lion, and Peridot the porcupine. Each animal feels that they are not special, but in the end they realize that they each have their own gifts. Great read for elementary school because in addition to learning that you are all special, you learn all the great names of precious gems. Loved it.
I borrowed this from the public library
