“You are one of us,” Carmen tells Roberta on her first day at a new school, and Roberta gladly sits with Carmen’s group—until she learns that they don’t play on the monkey bars.

Roberta loves the monkey bars, but the kids who play there don’t carry flowered lunchboxes like she does. She moves from group to group, but it seems that she doesn’t fit in anywhere! Then Roberta discovers some kids just like her everyone's different and they like it that way!
