A Tale about Embracing Similarities and Differences
Tuesday, October 6th, 2020—Stellaluna, a story that teaches its readers a timeless lesson about friendship, embracing one's differences, as well as, similarities amongst others. This story is an adaptation of classic children’s novel, ‘The Ugly Duckling.’ Stellaluna, a fruit bat, finds itself living amongst a family of birds. The birds of course try to teach Stellaluna to be a bird, but challenges do arise, as she tries her best. The only time she feels like herself is when she is in fact flying. Both Stellaluna and her bird friends discover that it is challenging to be something you are not, and it is important to embrace each other's differences and maintain a friendship.
Thank you, Mrs. Miller for sharing with the elementary Atoms this great story, Stellaluna, and for leading us in a discussion about embracing each other’s differences and similarities.
