Hey, Al
Hey, Al - Arthur Yorinks,Richard Egielski

Hey, Al is an engaging book about a janitor and a dog who live together but always seem to argue. A large bird offers to take them to an island for a new life, but they soon realize life is not always greener on the other side. As an extension to this book, I would get students to write about a time when they experienced something not being as good as it seemed. Character traits could also be analyzed after reading this book.

No, David!
No, David! - David Shannon

No David!, written by David Shannon, is about the typical five year old who breaks his mom’s rules. David’s mom is constantly telling him “No!” Or “Stop!”. David goes from chewing with his mouth open at the dinner table to jumping on his bed during bedtime. This book can be used to teach character traits and teaching the students to make text to self connections. I can have the students infer character traits about David based on what they read!

Amazing Grace
Amazing Grace - Mary Hoffman,Caroline Binch

Amazing Grace written by Mary Huffman and Caroline Binch, is such a beautiful story. It’s about a little girl name Grace who has a big imagination. She wants to play the part of Peter Pan in her school play but her peers tell her that she can’t play that role because it’s a “boy” role and because she’s black. But that doesn’t stop Grace from auditioning! This book is great for teaching children not to give up on their dreams and character traits! I can have the students infer character traits about Grace! My students can also write out what they want to be when they grow up, whether it's a ballerina or a ninja!

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

The Rainbow Fish is a beautiful story about a fish who learns the true meaning of friendship by sharing her shiny scales. This story focuses on morals and the value of being an individual. This would be a great opportunity to do a character traits board in the classroom. I would have a big fish without any scales and have my students write on shiny scales to add to the fish. The scales would include character traits that can be found in the story as well as character traits that the students themselves possess.

The Berenstain Bears' New Neighbors
The Berenstain Bears' New Neighbors - 'Stan Berenstain', 'Jan Berenstain'

The Berenstain Bears' New Neighbors, written by  By Stan Berenstain and Jan Berenstain, is about a family who is learning to accept their new neighbors even though they look completely different from what they are used to. I can use this story in my classroom to teach about acceptance, and being kind to others even though they may look different. I can read this book on during the first week of school and allow all of the students to have a Meet and Greet with each other.
