This book could kickstart your own "Sharing Gifts" time in your classroom. This year I want to really commit to showing my students that everyone has their own gifts and sometimes those gifts are different than what we might think.
I love this story for so many reasons! In this book, Seamus is short and is having a hard time being short in what he sees as a tall world. When he tries on a pair of his mom's high heels, he finds an answer for his dilemma. In the end he understands that sometimes it is good to be tall and sometimes it is good to be small. This story chips away at stereotypes and helps students identify with their own uniqueness. The illustrations are captivating and humorous.

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!
