The New Sweater

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
ISBN: 978-0-399-25767-4
