Well, I don't actually like this book but my 2-year-old daughter does.

Great for PST or kindergarten ages... teaches a basic social skill in a fun manner. I am leary of these books that teach a social/emotional lesson but this one works!

Stuart Murphy's books are a good bet and I support his efforts of teaching comcepts via picture books

Great book about self-esteem and confidence building for children in preschool-1st grade. Would be perfect for Open Court themes "sticking to it" or "try again."

I See I Learn

I was one of those kids who talked all the time in class. I loved telling stories. One day in the 4th Grade, my teacher said, “You tell such good stories, maybe you should try writing some of them down.” “Wow,” I thought. “She thinks my stories are good.” That’s when I started to real
