This book is a wonderful way to build empathy for students who are new to your class and coming from a different country.
Four Feet, Two Sandals Hardcover – Picture Book, August 1, 2007 by Karen Lynn Williams (Author), Khadra Mohammed (Author)
This is a touching story about two girls who develop a friendship in a refuge camp and share one pair of flip-flops.
Great book about how Besty Dowdy saved the day during the American Revolution.
What a touching story this is. The plot line is intriguing and students can learn a bit about Hanukkah, too. A boy is going to America and after a crash, finds himself alone on an iceberg. A bear comes and their relationship develops. This book talks about miracles and has a great surprise ending.
Themes: sacrifice, positivity, friendship, and courage

I love books so much! My particular loves are children's books and professional books that catch my fancy. One thing that keeps me happy and sane as a teacher is being able to get tons of books from the library and share them with my students. I have tried different ways to keep track of my books, but here's another attempt. We'll se if I can make this one fly!
