What others are saying...
“My class of inclusion 4th graders not only enjoyed the story but enjoyed finding and sharing about the good in them. I love the fact that you have included a digital version so that I can use this again in the future with digital learning students”
“When I first purchased this book, I wasn’t sure how to create a lesson around this theme. Thanks for providing a lesson that led to great discussion among my students about the definitions and stereotypes of “good” and “bad”. I think this really changed how they look at themselves and others.”
“This resource was perfect for my read-aloud and followed up with one of the many activities offered. The graphics were awesome and very age appropriate.”
