Clarence: The story of an Italian boy with big ears and big problems by Stephanie Baruffi
Clarence is the story of an Italian boy who doesn’t look like the rest of his dark-haired, dark-skinned family. He is quiet and shy and cannot understand why his family is so loud! Most of all, Clarence feels left out at school because the kids tease him about his big ears. They bully him and taunt him because he doesn’t look like the rest of them, or so they think! This story reflects the feelings we all can have when we don’t think we fit in. It demonstrates that with a little “reflection” we can all discover that we are beautifully and wonderfully made!

“Great Italian Story for Children!”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Miranda L
Absolutely love the Italian family theme and the message of embracing our differences–whether it’s our own unique qualities or our family’s.
