Book About Friendship and Acceptance
Bubba and Trixie by Lisa Campbell Ernst is a lovely story about a ladybug with a crimped wing who befriends a scared caterpillar. They become best buds, but then Bubba is worried that if he turns into a butterfly, he won't have Trixie as a friend anymore. Perfect for teaching CHARACTER. And friendship and acceptance. Could also talk about changes and how we are still the same person on the inside even when we change on the outside.
Published in 1997. Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers. 1530 words, Level 3.5.
I've already read it to my children TWICE in one week!
