Jacob is a little boy and has a definite idea of what to wear to school.  He wants to wear a dress. One day he wraps a towel about his waist like a skirt but the kids at school laugh and the school bully grabs it away from Jacob. When Jacob asks his mother to help he make a real dress that he can wear to school, she hesitates knowing that he will be teased and bullied. But she decides to let Jacob wear what he likes.
