The Missing Piece by Shel Silverstein

This post contains an affiliate link.

The Missing Piece is about a circle with a piece missing who goes in search of it.  He sings a song while he is rolling along.  He goes up hills and down hills, into holes and across oceans.

Some of the pieces he meets are too big, too small, too long, etc.  One day he finds a piece that fits, but he can’t sing anymore or say ‘hi’ to the butterflies.  He decides to put the piece down and rolls away.  It’s quite obvious that this book is really about people who “fit” and those who don’t.

I like the pictures.  They are pretty simple.
