Hooway for Wodney Wat - Helen Lester, Lynn Munsinger

Rodney the rat couldn't pronounce his "r's" so he was teased by all of the other rodents at school.  Rodney was very lonely an shy. Then, a new student named Camilla Capybara, joined the class and began bullying all of the other students.  One day, it was Rodney's turn to be the leader in the game "Simon Says".  Camilla didn't know Rodney could not pronounce the letter "r" so when he told the entire class to "go rest", Camilla thought he meant "go west".  She started walking off to the west, never to be heard from again.  Rodney became the class hero for getting rid of Camilla.


 This book would be good to lead the class in a discussion regarding bullying or accepting other people's differences.
