Author: Marisol Brown

We think the theme is always be yourself no matter what. Just because your different doesn't mean it's a bad thing. Marisol eats different food likes to wear different clothes and play different things. Marisol's brother says that out fit doesn't match but it does in your own way. ". "Mrs .Apple says that I want you to know that I like you just the way you are because the Marisol I know is a creative and unique girl. No matter how different you are your perfect in your own way."

Dancing in the Wings
Kadir Nelson

The theme in the book is being different is ok. Sassy was very tall and had big feet people tease her a lot mostly her brother. She could dance well but she couldn't have a partner. She imagined and practiced a lot and got picked to go to Washington DC because of her moves and her family was very proud of her. When Sassy got there she found a partner as tall as her and she finally got to shine on stage . This book makes me think of the book Marisol McDonald Doesn't match because it's about being different too.

Oliver Button Is a Sissy
Tomie Depaola

Oliver did not want to go join the boys that where playing football , he went and hiked. His mom and dad sent him to Leah's dance class, so he could get exercise and be him self. When he brought his tap shoes to the schoolyard they teased him but he didn't quit. This book makes me want to be myself and no one else.

The theme is be your self because Sonia wanted to be a juge but she became a Supreme Court justice. She was a kid and she got diabetes but she wanted to be a juge. She graduated to be the best student in the hole school she went to college. President Obama nominated her so that she can be a Supreme Court justice. It makes me feel like you can do anything.

I read My Name Is Yoon. I think the theme is different is ok because Yoon was from Korea and did not know her alghibet and not no how to speak English and did not no how to rite English. Yoon worked quietly at her desk and did not speak at all and at school her teacher was talking about the word cat and instead of righting her name she rote cat. Because Yoon was from Korea and looked behind her and ponytail girl said you are from Korea and laughed. And pony tail girl gave Yoon a cupcake and said it is ok to be different.
