Opening/Synopsis: “Oh No! Green Bean thought. Maybe I don’t belong in this family. I am green. They are blue.” GreenBean one days realizes that she doesn’t look like the other members of her family. She has long ears and they have short ears. She frets about all the differences and compares herself to her friend Anna who is the same color as her family. It isn’t until GreenBean’s blind brother is surprised by her statement and offers her a new perspective of family. GreenBean begins to see the diversity among her friends. And, she learns that being loved and accepted by her blue family is what counts.
