Everybody gets angry sometimes. But it's not always easy to cope with this emotion — especially for kids. Now, Caldecott Honor illustrator Molly Bang delivers a thoughtful, simple story to help parents and children understand how to handle the common problem of anger. Little Sophie's experiences — why she gets angry and what she does to express herself and find comfort — can open up a dialogue between parents and children, and teach kids how to manage their anger...and thrive.
You Wouldn't Want to Live Without Books (Paperback)
My class loved the beautiful story about a little bird who is lying on the sidewalk with a broken wing. Everyone is in such a hurry that they walk by without even noticing. Everyone that is, except a small boy. He takes the bird home and cares for it until it is ready to be set free. This is a beautiful story about love, hope, caring and giving of oneself to care for others. Last year I used part of this story for a lesson on zooming in on a small moment.
