When Agatha was born she had her father's nose and her mother's ears.When her relatives get together, it's clear that she doesn't quite fit in.And when she starts kinder, she realises just how different she is to everyone else...Then one day Miss Tibble, the kinder teacher, tells her class that like a snowflake, everyone is special in their own way. Then she asks each child to tell her how they might be special.Agatha cannot think of a single way she is special, so she sneaks away to hide.When the whole class search for her, and are quite upset about her absence, she leaves her hiding spot. Then several students suggest why Agatha is special. And, in the end, everyone agrees that Agatha is the best at being Agatha!Taps into early learning issues of belonging and acceptance.Links into Australian Curriculum - Civics & Citizenship - Students Prep to Year 4, developing ideas about social skills and values such as respect and caring for others.The use of a protagonist as an animal represents the idea of the 'every' child, easily related to by young readers.
