Choose Kind
Wonder - R.J. Palacio

R. J. Palacio's Wonder is an example of how everyone is unique and extraordinary. The main character, Auggie, is born with a facial deformity and dreams to be an "ordinary" boy. Throughout the novel, the reader begins to see Auggie through the other's characters' eyes. With the completion of Wonder, Auggie learns he is unique and special to the world and his peers recognize him with a heart, brain, and great strength. This novel would be great to be used in the classroom. One activity that could be done is asking students to write one unique aspect of their classmates that they admire. Another activity is for students to identify the character they relate and why they relate to the character.

Lets Talk About Diversity!
Heather Has Two Mommies - Leslea Newman,Laura Cornell

Guided Reading Level: L

Grade Level: 2nd-3rd

Summary: What kind of a family are you apart of? We all are different and come from different families, even Heather! Heather Has Two Mommies is about a little girl named Heather whose favorite number is two. She has two arms, two legs, two pets, and two mommies! 

Idea: With this book, I would be using it for a lesson on diversity. No matter where the child is from, and no matter what kind of family the child has, the teacher and students should be accepting towards that. It's all about diversity and open-mindedness! An activity that I would have students complete, as illustrated in the book, is to have students draw out their families and write a caption under it.

Charlotte's Web
Charlotte's Web - Garth Williams,E.B. White,Kate DiCamillo

A little girl named Fern convinced her father to spare the life of a piglet who she ends up naming Wilbur. After Wilbur does some growing, he is sold to Fern's uncle where there is more room. Wilbur tries to befriend the other farm animals but they reject him. Charlotte, a spider on the barn door, befriends Wilbur and keeps him company. Wilbur discovers that he is going to b slaughtered so Charlotte comes up with a plan to save him. Charlotte spins words describing Wilbur into her web which attracts a lot of local attention. Wilbur goes to the county fair and is praised by most of the people there. While at the fair with Wilbur, Charlotte spins an egg sac and ends up passing away. Wilbur takes the egg sac back home where is hatches and Charlotte's offspring keep Wilbur company. I would use this book to help with reading comprehension and sequencing.

Corduroy - Don Freeman

This is a wonderful little book about a stuffed bear who wanted to be picked up from the toy store he was in. One day, a little girl wanted to buy him but her mother would not let her because he was missing a button. That night after everyone left, Corduroy the bear left his store in the mall to find his button. The security guard found him and returned him back to the toy store. The next day the girl comes back to buy him and take him to her home. There she sews on a button to his overalls and takes care of him. I would use this in my classroom for quiet reading time or to help teach acceptance.

Chrysanthemum - Kevin Henkes

Lexile Level: 460L


This book is about a little mouse with a unique name. She loves her name, but the children at school make fun of her. She gets upset, but her parents tell her she perfect and there is no reason to get upset. She embraces her name. I would use this book to teach children that everyone is different and that is okay. Different it good.
