LG 5yo scared of being laughed at

In the last few months our 5yo has started worrying about people laughing at her in school (eg brushes hair a lot as doesn’t want “crazy hair” as people might laugh at her in school, or can’t wear new boots in school as people might not like them and laugh at her).

Can anyone suggest any kids books that help with this?

Or any methods they used if their kid when through this?

It's breaking my heart :(

And neither of us (parents) are bothered by how we look, and don't spent time or effort on how we look.

I don't know where it's come from (guessing kids in school) and what to do about it. Any help very welcome.
