But as she teaches the flowers and the chickens, and the butterflies, they don’t pay attention to her and Babs feels so sad.
All she wants is a friend who is just like her! Babs is about to give up on her quest when an unexpected visitor who is completely different from herself, arrives on the farm. Together they discover an extraordinary friendship that completely transforms how Babs learns to look again and really see the beauty in others. In this charming tale for children, a little girl learns from an unlikely teacher that differences are beautiful.
