“Today is going to be the best day ever! Stefanie Ann is very excited. Today is going to be her very first kindergarten art class. She is finally going to be able to wear her new artist smock. This beautiful smock makes her feel like a real artist. The smock, sewn with loving care by her mother, is black with a colorful pattern of splendid monarch butterflies.

“Although Stefanie Ann loves the smock, she is ostracized by her classmates who all have T-shirts for art class. Stefanie is mortified. She doesn’t understand how anyone could laugh at her smock. It is beautiful, and her mother made it for her! Mrs. Rogers gets the class to settle down, and they still have their art class. Stefanie Ann wears her smock, and as she paints her picture, she begins to feel better. Although Stefanie Ann’s classmates laugh at her smock, her friend, Andrea, does something totally unexpected and makes Stefanie Ann feel much better.

“In fact, it still is going to be the best day ever!”
