This book promotes appreciating who you are, as well as accepting others. Does liking peanut butter and pickle sandwiches, or painting with your toes, or even having an imaginary friend make a person strange? That's what the kids say about Bernadette, but when Bernadette meets Sophie, a new neighbor, Bernadette realizes that her uniqueness is nothing strange at all.
