Super cute book about finding what makes you special and not getting hung up on not being the same as others. Or not measuring up to their standard.
We Are Growing! (Elephant & Piggie like reading!, #2) by Laurie Keller this is a great read aloud for really young classes, read it to a 1st grade and had them rolling
Elephant and Piggie want to share with you what they are reading....so out of that comes the "Elephant and Piggie Like Reading" series. The first 2 books in the series are written by different authors so I imagine that others in the series will too (I have not researched that). Walt and his friends all grow and discover things about themselves..the curliest, the tallest, the silliest...but Walt does not know what he is. That is, until the lawn mower comes by and cuts them all back to the same size. I think that kids who love the Elephant and Piggie series will love this new spin off.
