How to be Famous by:  Michal Shalev

I just came across this book where an egocentric pigeon tells stories about how famous and beloved it is, though the pictures suggest otherwise.  This pigeon could give Mo Willems’s bird a run for his money.  It would be fun to compare and contrast the two pigeons!

The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds

Anyone who works with children or is a parent should read this book.

The Dot is  about a girl who is encouraged by her teacher to take a risk.  The girl is filled with self-doubt. The support of her teacher gives her confidence to take risks.  She then passes on her teacher’s words of wisdom to another student.  A beautiful story about the power of teachers.
