Bink and Gollie look very different and think differently, too, but they are the best of friends. In this book, they rollerskate into a colorful sock adventure, set off on an expedition, and find a home for an aquatic friend. I highly recommend this series for any K-3rd grader who enjoyed Elephant and Piggie or Frog and Toad books.

Each Kindness

By Jacqueline Woodson

Chloe will not talk to or include the new girl, Maya. Maya doesn’t wear new clothes or look like Chloe’s friends. One day, the teacher talks to the class about how important each act of kindness is and how it has a ripple effect into people’s lives. Chloe wants to make things right, but she never has her chance. This is a beautiful story that reminds us all that each action we take or don’t take affects those around us.

If you have a preschooler through 3rd grader, you should check out Mo Willems.  His books vary from engaging easy readers to humorous read aloud books.  A favorite in my family is The Pigeon Finds a Hotdog.  You can play games or look at books on his website.  The games are geared toward a younger audience.  His published books have a wider age range appeal.
