The New Sweater By: Oliver Jeffers
The Hueys are all the same. Everyone does the same things, dresses the same, and acts the same. Rupert wanted to be different, so he knits a sweater. At first all the Hueys think he is strange, but then one by one they all want the new sweater, until they all look the same again. I liked this book for young readers because it teaches them how it is good to be different. I can't wait to share it with my fourth and fifth graders and have a discussion about how boring it is when everyone is the same.
I borrowed this from the public library
