MJ's Classroom: The Boy with a Tree on his head

"There's something different about Mark. When he joins the class, everyone laughs at him. Can MJ help Mark get along with the others?"

The Boy with a Tree on his Head is the first of a series of four picture books written for the Ministry of Community, Youth and Sports (MCYS). This book is based on Article 2 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC):

Children must not suffer discrimination "irrespective of the child's, or his or her parent's or legal guardian's race, coloir, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national, ethnic or social origin, property, disability, birth or other status".
