Just one more page...

I need to make more money, because tonight I ended up at Barnes and Noble with our librarian and I fell in love with these books:

"Fraidy Zoo"- This book is too funny. It's about a little girl and her fear about an upcoming trip to the zoo. Why? Well I can't spoil the ending, but let's just say I busted out laughing. Her family in the story comes up with the most creative ways to help her face her fears, something I would love to share with my small groups and use in the classroom.

"Digby Differs"- It's hard to tell in this picture, but this book will be a centerpiece in your office. It's long and eye catching, like a fine piece of art work. I just have to have it. The story is heart warming and will make every student smile. Digby, the adorable sheep, feels different because of his red strips and goes on an incredible adventure to find a place where he fits in. In the end he discovers that he was in the right place right at home. The illustrations are beautiful and I love spotting the red and white object in each page. My self esteem groups are going to love this. The perfect holiday gift for your favorite counselor, teacher, or librarian. 

"Bad Kitty Christmas"- I have actually wanted this book for over a year, but every time I see it I love it even more. It's use of the alphabet is just brilliant. 

"The Gift of Nothing"- Not only is this book perfect for the holiday season, but it's fantastic year round. A sweet, touching story about a cat who can't decide what to give his friend that has it all. A story about gift giving, selflessness, and the true meaning of friendship. LOVE it.
