Two Speckled Eggs

author/illustrator: Jennifer K. Mann

Itís Gingerís birthday, and she has to invite all the girls in her class to
her party, including Lyla Browning. Lyla isnít like the other girls: she
smells like old leaves, doesnít talk much, and once brought a tarantula
to school for show-and-tell. On the day of the party, Lyla is much
earlier than everyone else. But even after the others arrive, Gingerís
party doesnít go quite the way sheíd hoped: some of the girls change
the rules to the games, and no one likes her silver and gold birthday
cake -- except Lyla. By the time Lyla gives Ginger her present -- a tiny
homemade nest with two delicious malted-milk eggs -- Ginger begins
to wonder: is being different really such a bad thing?

A birthday party sets the scene in this sweet and relatable story for anyone whoís ever been the odd girl out.
