Mentor Text Post #2-Watch your words

It is very difficult to teach children to be careful about what they say. Sometimes we say things, and they just pop out of our mouth before we can catch them. This book is perfect for that. I recently read it to my 1st and 2nd grade groups. It was so adorable when I got to the part where Leo told his mom, "I hate you", they all gasped. The play on text and image in this book is fabulous. Definitely a great read for young children.

The color red is a big bully, always telling the other colors that he was the best. Until one color was brave enough to stand up to red. It only take one person to be the brave one. Great text to teach about doing the right thing, sticking up for yourself, and those weaker and less powerful than you. 

Happy reading! Xo
