Item description for Chicken Soup for Little Souls : Della Splatnuk, Birthday Girl (Chicken Soup for Little Souls) by Lisa McCourt, Grant Porter & Jack Canfield...
Overview The last thing Carrie wants to do is go to Della Splatnuk's birthday party. Everyone knows Della is weird, and Carrie's best friends have vowed not to go. But once Carrie is there, she begins to wonder whether Della is really all that bad, and whether all the kids who did not show up have ever given Della a chance. When Carrie looks within her own little soul to find an independence and conviction she didn't know she had, readers will learn that how people look doesn't always tell you what they are like inside. Just as Carrie learns amazing new things about herself, about Della and about friendship, children reading or listening to this story will learn to trust their own feelings when it comes to who is their friend, not the opinions of their peers.

Reviews - What do customers think about Chicken Soup for Little Souls : Della Splatnuk, Birthday Girl (Chicken Soup for Little Souls)?
Great Teaching Tool Mar 26, 2004
For teachers who have a student who is a little different and not easily accepted by the others in the class, this book is an excellent springboard for a discussion about compassion. My 4th graders were able to talk about how Della would have been treated at school and how they could make a difference to someone who is never chosen as a partner.
Great lesson in a great story! May 1, 2000
The reviewers might consider it didactic, but my kids loved the story! I also enjoyed reading it to them. And I think they took an important lesson from it!
So wonderfully touching Sep 2, 1999
A picture is worth thousand words. Reading the story can choke up the maturest of woman. But when you see the pictures next to the paragraphs, you could just stare at the images and truly feel you were there even if you never had an experience like this
