We discovered this book earlier this summer when I used it for a summer camp I taught. A great book about staying true to yourself while being kind to others.
Violet is the best; everyone agrees. Except Rosie. When the class plants pea plants, Violet knows her plant will be the tallest. One day, Rosie notices Violet’s plant has some green peeking out so she covers it with dirt when no one is looking. She soon finds out that Violet has the chicken pox and makes the choice to be a good friend to Violet by taking care of her plant while she’s gone.
This is a great book to help children learn that they’re special how they are and that everyone can make a difference in this world and have their own time to shine.
We decorated flower pots and planted our own flower seeds (instead of peas).
