The Rainbow Fish
The Rainbow Fish - Marcus Pfister,J. Alison James

Grade: 1st

 

This book is all about friendship. The Rainbow Fish gives away all his scales. At the end of the book, he may not be as beautiful as he once was, but he now has many friends. I will read this book to my classroom to promote friendship. We will discuss what a good friend is and why it is important to be a good friend. Then, each student will get a scale. They will write one or two words describing what a good friend is. Afterwards, we will make a Rainbow Fish. If I see students not being a good friend, we will refer to the fish to evaluate our actions. This is a good way to hold students accountable for their actions since they are the ones that came up with the traits of a good friend.

Franklin's Secret Club
Franklin's Secret Club - Paulette Bourgeois,Brenda Clark

Franklin's Secret Club would be a wonderful story to teach students the importance of not leaving people out of activities and including each other. This would be good to use in a kindergarten through 3rd grade class.  This book could be used to teach about friendship.  It could also be used if anyone in the class is being left out of things.  It would be a good way not to single anyone out but to still get the message across.  This could also be used as a writing prompt where the class could write about a time they were left out of something and how it made them feel.

Bad Astrid
Bad Astrid - Eileen Brennan,Regan Dunnick

This book would be good for kindergarten and 1st grade.  This book would be a great way to teach about bullying.  In the story, the main character is bullied by the new girl in town. Astrid is constantly mean and hateful!  One day, Astrid has an accident on her bike and needs help.  Instead of being mean like Astrid was, the main character helps Astrid up and decides that maybe Astrid just needs a friend.  This could also help introduce a writing prompt about a time a student was bullied or how they might could help a friend they know is being bullied.

Anti Bullying: David and Goliath With a TWIST (Bible Stories With a Twist)
Anti Bullying: David and Goliath With a TWIST (Bible Stories With a Twist) - Benjie Herskowitz Joshua asks his mother for a bedtime story, so she shares the tale of David and Goliath. Only she puts her own twist on it, using clichés to help tell the story. Joshua's active imagination conjures up the weirdest images as David stands up to the bully.

The use of clichés is a very clever concept used to inject humor into an otherwise serious story. Kids will cheer David along, while they learn a classic Bible story and some unusual English expressions as well. The illustrations by Darrell Mordecai are colorful and amusing and are an integral part of the story. I especially enjoyed the image of Goliath "getting their goat". And "succeeded with flying colors" is perfectly illustrated with fireworks! Not something I have thought of before!

A sure-fire winner; this one's bound to go off with a bang!

I received this book in return for an honest review.
