Must Read Monday ~ Friendship books

Kindergarten Planet and The Kindergarten Connection are hosting a linky all about reading and this week's topic is books about friendship!

I have been reading some of the posts from the linky and now I want to go shopping on Amazon for some more classroom books!!

Here are a few of my favorite friendship books:


Chester's Way by Kevin Henkes is a classic!  I love his illustrations and characters!  This story is great for teaching about not just making friends but about trying new things and not judging each other.  Love, love, love this book!  For all your Kevin Henkes fans, check out my author study here!  

Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon by Patty Lovell is a cute story about a little girl that wasn't like all the other kids in 1st grade.  She is short and has bucked teeth but her grandmother taught her to stand tall and believe in herself.  When she moved to a new school she learned how important her grandmother's lesson really was.  This story is a great way to talk about differences in each other and believing in yourself!  

Making Friends is an Art by Julia Cook is outstanding!  I love all of Julia Cooks books but this one is a great book that is full of character traits and is perfect for talking about friendship and making friends!

Now I'm off to go read some more link ups and then hit amazon for some new friendship books!  :)


  1. Thanks so much for linking up with us! I love Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon! Such a great read aloud. I don't think I have ever read Making Friends is an Art - I think I will have to check that one out!

  2. Hi! Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon is a fabulous book! I love Kevin Henkes, but I don't know Chester's Way. I'm sure it is adorable if he wrote and illustrated it though. I'm so happy you linked up with us!
