Excerpt from The Book: "The Smallest Boy in Class"

Once upon a time, there was a little boy named Billy who was the smallest boy in his class. He was only 4 feet tall, while all the other boys were at least 5 feet tall. Billy was often teased by the other boys for being so small. They called him names like "Shorty" and "Tiny."One day, Billy was playing in the park when he saw a group of boys playing basketball. He wanted to join in, but he was afraid of being teased. He decided to just sit on the sidelines and watch.After a while, one of the boys from the group came over to Billy. He introduced himself as John, and he asked Billy if he wanted to play. Billy was surprised, but he said yes. John and Billy played basketball together for a while.John was a really good player, He didn't tease Billy for being small, and he even helped Billy to improve his game. Billy had a lot of fun playing basketball with John. He realized that it didn't matter how tall he was, as long as he had fun playing the game.Billy continued to play basketball with John and the other boys. He eventually became one of the best players in his class. He learned that it doesn't matter what you look like, as long as you have a positive attitude and you're willing to work hard.
