Curly Curly is different than her siblings. They all have straight hair but she has curly hair. When their parents go shopping, Curly's older siblings decide to see how Curly would look with short, straight hair. When they see the results they feel sorry for what they did, but their mother teaches them that sometimes sorry isn't enough, sometimes you need to change your attitude as well. The fact that a child has curly hair is no reason to make her feel bad or think that being different is wrong. The kids all learn their lesson and are happy when Curly's hair comes back, curly.
