Spotty the fish is a
unusual fish. He was born with bright green spots unlike any other
Everyday he swims in the lake. When he meets other fish, they tell him
that he does not belong in the lake because he has bright green
spots. The other fish make fun of him. They bully him and call him
names. So he went home to tell his mother about the other fish being
mean to him. She told him that he was the most beautiful fish in the
entire lake. His mother also told him that he was special, because
there is no other fish that looks like him. This gave Spotty a lot of
self esteem about his self. When his mother went to kiss him good night
she told him not to listen to the other fish in the lake. She reminded
him once more that he was very beautiful and special to her and that
was all that mattered. When he awoke the next morning, he had a huge
smile on his face. He felt really good about his self. He
decieced that when he saw the other fish today, that he would just
smile at them no matter what they would say to him. As he swam past the
other fish they began to laugh and he just looked at them and smiled.
He told them that he was not going to listen to anything that they
said. They saw his courage and never made fun of him again!
