Enjoy the HILARIOUS book A Porcupine Named Fluffy by Lynn Munsinger. The story is adorable and the images are a hoot! Better yet, is the thought-provoking discussion that you can have with your students about self-acceptance.
Here's what Publishers Weekly has to say about the book:
From Publishers Weekly
Should Mr. and Mrs. Porcupine name their baby Lance? Needleroozer? Quillian? Perhaps they should, but they don't. Instead they decide on the unlikely name of Fluffy. Fluffy's name is a source of sorrow to the sharp-quilled youngster, until he meets and befriends a rhinoceros named . . . Hippo! Munsinger's bright, cheery pictures are as whimsical as Lester's delightfully silly text. Together, they create nicely absurd images, such as a scene in which Fluffy and Hippo roll on the ground, laughing so hard that they start to cry. Lester and Munsinger who have collaborated on other picture books tell a sweet story with joyful exuberance.
