A beautiful, positive, and wonderfully illustrated children's story that encourages children not to judge others. Embracing self-acceptance and self-love.

Ms. Freckle has a secret she's worried that her students will laugh at, but the students try to show her there's nothing to fear - or is there?

What could her secret be?

We all have differences, but once you step into the class of Ms. Freckle - the nicest teacher of them all, there's no need to worry Just Because... is a feel-good story about accepting who we are and finding the courage to be who we are despite what others may think. Viewed from the teacher's perspective giving children the realization that adults have insecurities too.
