The Story of Ferdinand
The Story of Ferdinand - Munro Leaf,Robert Lawson

 Lexile Level: AD830L

 

This is a  book about a bull who is unlike all the other bulls in the pasture. He doesn't want to fight! The story finds Ferdinand in a pickle when he is picked to fight in Madrid, only he is distracted by flowers! Ferdinand is also an admirable role model because he is different, and he is comfortable with himself

This would be a great book for 2nd or 3rd grade, for social studies, you could teach a unit on Spain and talk about the culture of bullfighting and bulls; you could also use this book you always believe in the right thing and to believe in yourself. That you don't have to be like everyone else to fit in, you were born to stand out.

Chrysanthemum
Chrysanthemum - Kevin Henkes

Lexile Level: 460L

 

The story is based on a little girl’s journey of dealing with her very unique name. She starts loving her name, she ends up getting teased about her name at school. Eventually with the help of her teacher, Chrysanthemum is able proudly love her name again.

 

I would read this to talk about bullying and show that everyone  is special and that we need to be accepting of others and yourself for who we are as individuals.

Be Different
Chrysanthemum - Kevin Henkes

Chrysanthemum is made fun of for her name being different. In my classroom, I would teach students about how different our community is. From race, gender, sex, beliefs, and customs, there is many attributes that come into making you who you are. I will discuss with my class that you should always be accepting to one another. You may not know what they could bring to the table if you never gave them a chance. The students would be given a "secret friend" and would then have to write on construction paper one thing they liked best about their friend. We would share this to the class. It would bring my class together and make every student feel good.

 

Intended Audience/Grade Level: 2nd-3rd Grade.
