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.

This book is cute. Eight blades of grass are growing. They're so proud of themselves. It's adorable. Then they start to notice their differences: one is curliest, one is tallest, two are pointiest, etc. But the last one, Walt, doesn't know what he is. When the lawn mower comes along, he is finally able to determine what he is. This story is creative and fun, but to me it felt a little bit more geared towards a younger audience (ages 3-5) with all of the adjectives. It's still a fun read - independently (ages 6-8) or as a read aloud (ages 3-5) - but I didn't enjoy it quite as much as The Cookie Fiasco. http://www.momsradius.com/2016/09/kid-lit-elephant-piggie-like-reading.html
