Zero is a big round number. When she looks at herself, she just sees a hole right in her center. Every day she watches the other numbers line up to count: "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7...!" "Those numbers have value. That's why they count," she thinks. But how could a number worth nothing become something? As budding young readers learn about numbers and counting, they are also introduced to accepting different body types, developing social skills and character, and learning what it means to find value in yourself and in others. In this sequel to One, the author once again proves you can have big self-concept discussions with little numbers. Color. Grades K-3. [10” x 8”...32

by Audrey Penn (2012, Tanglewood Press, 16.95/hardback)
After sharing the story of a little bird who is afraid to have flying lessons in front of his friends, Mrs. Raccoon tells Chester that being brave doesn't mean being unafraid; being brave means not letting that fear stop him.

Of course, getting a Kissing Hand helps a little too. This simple strategy can be helpful to children in many different situations. Color. Grades PreK-3. [8" x 10"...32 pages]
