Bob is a Unicorn
In this story by Michelle Nelson-Schmidt, Bob is a little different, just like many of the characters in The Greatest Showman! Bob thinks he’s a unicorn, but the other animals just don’t see it. Just like in the movie, some people didn’t see the excitement of P.T. Barnum’s circus. This story teaches to be who you are despite what others see in you or say about you. It also teaches to be passionate and creative.
