I Have a Dream Beautifully written and illustrated. At the end of the book the entire speech is printed. The book also comes with a CD of the entire speech. It’s remarkable to listen to the speech while reading the words and looking at the illustrations.
Llama Llama Time to Share Fun to read aloud and helpful to children and parents alike, Llama Llama Time to Share is for any child who needs a little encouragement in sharing.
Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons Pete the Cat is wearing his favorite shirt—the one with the four totally groovy buttons. But when one falls off, does Pete cry? Goodness, no! He just keeps on singing his song—after all, what could be groovier than three groovy buttons? Count down with Pete in this rocking new story from the creators of the bestselling Pete the Cat books. If you are already familiar with the Pete the Cat series here’s a math freebie you can use with actual buttons – it’s a set of 10 frames, 5 frames, and double 10 frames. (Created by Krissy at Mrs. Miner’s Monkey Business!)
The Duckling Gets a Cookie!? The Pigeon is back (hooray!) and this time the drama centers on an adorable little duckling who gets a cookie just by asking–politely. I appreciate the book’s message about the power of politeness and the rewards of sharing.
