“What If Everybody Did That?”

Back To School day/week is the time when we introduce rules of the classroom and expectations of conduct. In “What If Everybody Did That?” the story takes the reader through a number of scenarios in which the main character does not make a good choice. “What If Everybody Did That?” visually shows reasons for respect of others, safety, and social responsibility. The question of “What If” really resonates and stays with students. At the same time, it serves as a guiding anchor for classroom behavior.

Wemberly worried about everything. She especially worried about strating school. This book is a great at-home read before school even starts. Kids just love Wemberly.

Chrysunthemum – by Kevin Henkes 


Chrysanthemum thought that her name is just perfect until she went to school and got bullied. This book is ideal for teaching mutual respect in the classroom at the beginning of the year or any other time. Victoria shows a perfect example of how not to be. “Chrysanthemum” is a great read for any time during the year.

Highly Recommended!
