Oliver Button is a Sissy by Tomie dePaola

First published January 1, 1979

Plot Description: Oliver Button would rather read, dance, and draw pictures than play football like the other boys. His classmates’ taunts don’t stop him from doing what he likes best, and his practice and persistence pay off in the end when Oliver Button star in the school talent show.

Quantitative Reading Level: Grades K-2

Evaluation: This needs to be in every collection, not just for those little boys who consider themselves different than the others, who would rather dance than play football, but also for those kids who think that boys who would rather dance than play football are weird.
