This adorably illustrated book brings a wonderful real-life example of what it means to share. It is about an elephant who debates whether or not he should share his ice cream with his best friend, Piggy. In the end, he waits so long that his ice cream melts, but Piggy shows up with a sweet surprise to cheer him up. I love that this book also shows the value of friendship and how to share at a level that kids can relate to. Some great activities for this book could be to have students write a narrative about friends sharing, or have students make an ice cream cone and write what they value about a friend, and then share that cone. This book would also be good to jump into adjectives with.
