This book walk through a farmer, and how on his way to the town of the emperors kingdom, he finds different pieces of articles of the emperor's clothing, and puts it on only to find out that he looks sill in it and can not complete the farmers usual tasks.
This book would be great for teaching students about the importance of understanding tha the way you dress doesn't change who you are.
