Reading progress update: I've read 89%.
Locked - Brooke Blaine,Ella Frank

“The first thing you asked me is what I’m doing here with you.” Entwining our fingers, Ace took a deep inhale, and when he let it out, it was as if it were the first full breath he’d taken since he’d last touched me. Then he whispered, “I’m living.”

I could feel tears welling in my eyes, and when I shut them to stave them off, I heard him say, “Look at me, Dylan.”

And when I blinked and refocused on him, I was shocked to see his own eyes were glistening. “The second was why. Why am I with you…” As Ace’s voice trailed off, he brought his other hand to my cheek and asked, “Where else would I be?”

The Pout Pout Fish
The Pout-Pout Fish book and CD storytime set - Deborah Diesen

The Pout Pout Fish is a really cute book about a fish that thinks he has a "pouty" face because that is how he has also perceived himself. After claiming himself as a pout pout fish for so long, a new friend comes along and shows him a whole different view of himself - a much brighter, happier view.

 

You could use this story in a kindergarten, first or second grade classroom and have students construct a "pout pout" fish, and have a creative writing sheet that says "I am a pout pout fish when..." that they would complete. You could also do a graphic organizer that has a "kiss kiss" fish and a "pout pout" face, and under each picture would have "I feel cheery/pouty when..."

Bully B.E.A.N.S.
Bully B.E.A.N.S. - Julia Cook

Bully B.E.A.N.S. is a fantastic story about children who stand up to a new bully, Bobbette. They eventually tell their parents and teachers about the bullying, and we learn that Bobbette was bullied at her old school.

 

This story is perfect to read in 1st-5th grade, since bullying is an issue in just about every grade. Students can be given a pack of "bully beans" (jelly beans) and if they are bullied, they can eat one and write about it in a journal or on a note card and give it to their teacher or counselor. For the older grades, 4th and 5th, you can even have your class act out a bullying scene in groups and have the rest of the class, the audience, decide what needs to happen or answer questions throughout the group's skit.
