Gaston - The characters in this book learn to not judge things by appearance alone and to trust their feelings. We love the way Kelly DiPucchio doesn’t come right out and tell readers the problem in this story. Readers will need to read, reread and study the illustrations to understand the problem the mother dogs see. We can’t wait to hear what details and patterns students notice as they read this text.

Jesse sent and had the young man brought to them. He was ruddy, a youth handsome to behold and making a splendid appearance. The Lord said, "There-- --anoint him, for this is he!" Then Samuel, with the horn of oil in hand, anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and from that day on, the spirit of the Lord rushed upon David. (1 Sam 16:10-13)
