My favorite children's book is Sneetches because I think it is funny. It also rhymes and I like stories that rhyme. In the story some sneetches have stars and some don't. The ones with stars think that they are the best and they don't talk to the ones without. The sneetches without the stars are very sad because they don't get invited to anything and none of the star belly sneetches even talk to them.
Then one day a guy named Sylvester McMonkey Mcbean comes to the beach where the sneetches live. He tells the sneetches that he can give the plain belly sneetches stars for only 3 dollars. Then all the sneetches get stars and the original star belly sneetches get mad because now they can't tell each other apart. Then Sylvester McMonkey Mcbean tells them that stars are out so all the original star belly sneetches get their stars removed. The sneetches then keep getting stars on and off until they spent all of their money and nobody can tell each other apart. Then they all start being nice to each other because they realize that they are all the same.
The star bellied sneetches treated the plain bellied sneetches bad because they didn't have stars. " All the star bellied sneetches would brag, 'We're the best kind of Sneech on the beaches.'" I think this story tells us that we should not treat people bad just because they don't have something.You should not judge someone if they don't have something that you do. I think that it also shows that we are all equal and should be treated as such. People don't think they're the best if they don't have the latest thing.
When is a time that you felt left out because you didn't have something that your friends had?
