Silly Dilly Duckling
Silly Dilly Ducklling - Claire Freedman,Jane Chapman

Silly Dilly Duckling written by Claire Freedman is a 1.8 on the Accelerated Reading leveling system. This story is about a baby duck whose feather falls out and drifts in the wind. The duckling thinks she must find it. A hedgehog and mouse try to help Dilly find the feather. However, Dilly returns home empty handed. Dilly's mother then says that one day she will lose all her down so new big feathers can grow in. This makes Dilly happy. This is a perfect book for young readers just starting school. It can be put in a lesson about growing up to teach that change is good, not scary.

The Story of Ferdinand the Bull
The Story of Ferdinand the Bull:Facsimil... The Story of Ferdinand the Bull:Facsimile of Manuscript Presented On Occasion of a Program in Honor of Munro Leaf - Munro Leaf

The Story of Ferdinand the Bull by Munro Leaf is a 3.7 on the Accelerated Reading leveling system. This story is about a bull that just wants to relax in the sun and smell the flowers. His family and friends are all aggressive and look forward to the bull fights. One day when Ferdinand is big, he is chased by a bee. It just so happens that this is the same day men come out to find the best fighting bull. Ferdinand accidentally shows off all of his strength, and the men think Ferdinand is the best bull. They take him off to fight, but he just stares at the ladies flowers until the men are forced to take him back to the farm. This is a great book for a diversity unit. It is an example of how students do not have to be like everyone else, they just have to be themselves. This story could also be used for the first day of school to proactively stop bullying due to differences.

Old Hat New Hat
Old Hat New Hat (Bright & Early Books(R)) - Stan Berenstain,Jan Berenstain

Old Hat New Hat by Stan Berenstain is a 1.5 on the Accelerated Reading leveling system.  It is a silly story about a bear that is considering buying a new hat. He looks at many different options, but there always seems to be something wrong with each of them. Some are too itchy and some are too lumpy. In the end, the bear decides to keep his old hat because it is perfect. I would use this book with beginning readers or as a lesson in second grade rhyming.
