1. Unlovable by Dan Yaccarino is a cute story about a pug who learns 2 things: 1)that he is lovable just the way he is and 2)the true meaning of friendship. My students LOVE the surprise in this story!
3. I Wanna Iguana by Karen Kaufan Orloff is about a boy named Alex. He is trying to convince his mom to let him have an iguana, so he puts his arguments in writing. So funny! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE David Catrow and his illustrations!
4. My Lucky Day by Keiko Kasza. A hungry fox is sure that it's his lucky day when a delectable-looking pig knocks on his door by mistake.
5. Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon by Patty Lovell is about a little girl who embraces her differences and stands up to the class bully. She doesn't let anyone get her down. A great story for teaching children acceptance and self-esteem. Once again, David Catrow does the wonderful illustrations.
Those are my picks and you can find a TON of others if you go check out the linky party!!
