Giving Chase By Lauren Dane 99 cents!
Giving Chase - Lauren Dane

When landscaper Kyle Chase takes notice of Maggie Wright, all of Petal, Georgia, wonders what the quiet schoolteacher is hiding underneath her tight bun and boring blouses. Even Maggie doesn’t quite get it, but after a failed relationship and a disastrous attempt to get back out there, she’s no match against the famous Chase charm, and Kyle has it in spades. 

Kyle wants Maggie in his life—and in his bed—and he doesn’t mind getting down and dirty to prove it. For years he’s avoided the kind of trouble that comes with “good girls” like her, but Maggie’s the best trouble he’s ever been in. He craves more of it. And more of her.

But even as their love grows into thoughts of forever, a hidden danger from Maggie’s past threatens to tear them apart. And when Maggie suddenly disappears, Kyle must put his faith in his family and race to save the love of his life before he loses her forever.

The Chase is on. One small town. Four hot brothers. And enough heat to burn up anyone who dares to get close. Don’t miss the next books: Taking ChaseChased and Making Chase.

The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

This book is super sweet! A tree that loves a little boy that grows up into a man, gives everything it possibly can for him. I would use this around the time of the 100 days of school. Create a giving tree in the classroom and we work towards 100 acts of kindness. Add each on a leaf.

Always Give a Helping Hand.
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

This book opens your heart up and shows the importance of giving relentlessly and with love. The illustrations are simple, yet so powerful. The storyline really touches children of all ages, as it progresses into the future, into scenarios in which we all can relate to. A wonderful activity students could do would be to create their own giving tree and write compliments to other students and then present them.

The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

The Giving Tree is a great classic read for all ages! This book teaches about a taking and giving relationship between a boy and a tree. The tree is happy providing for the boy all the way through the book. There is only a brief moment when the tree is not happy but even in the end she can still provide the one last thing that the elderly "boy" wants. I would use this book in my classroom to talk about how you can only take so much without giving.

This wonderful piece of literature is suitable for children of all ages, and adults too! This story promotes kindness and sharing. I think this book would be perfect to read at the beginning of the school year as friends are just settling into the classroom. This book would be perfect for sequencing, and I would even turn it into a center. This text would also be perfect to read during Earth Day!
