Saturdays And Storybooks Always Make Me Smile!

It's a super Saturday which means it's time to link up with Paula for her Storybook Saturday Link Up!

 
I was in my local library picking out my weekly batch of books this morning when I noticed a sign which said that next week is National Civility Week (for my students:  civility means showing respect and using good manners).
 
With that idea in mind, here is my recommendation for Civility Week or any week for that matter:
 
 
Enemy Pie by Derek Munson
 
This book even has an accompanying Reading Rainbow DVD:
 
 
This book tells the story of a boy whose new neighbor - Jeremy Ross - becomes his biggest enemy. Dad has a solution to help his son get along with Jeremy - he has to spend the day with Jeremy and invite Jeremy for dinner.  The dessert is "enemy pie."  This book is just a great story to begin with, and it has a great message, too.  Plus, the DVD goes along perfectly.
 
Additionally, I found this link which has activities to accompany Enemy Pie.   
 
 
Please let me know how you like your "enemy pie."  Bon apetit!
