My Dragon Doesn't Want to Wear Shoes
by Ligia Carvalho

Freddy is a stubborn little dragon that refuses to wear his green shoes because his friends make fun of him. Every time someone asks him to wear it, he says, "No."

Follow Freddy's journey, from his lack of confidence to stand up for his choices, throughout the realization that all the colors are pretty and should be celebrated.
