Kindergarten: Kitten's First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes. The pages are the colour of milk. Tongue in cheek with a satisfying ending.
Grade 1-2: Lily's Purple Plastic Purse by Kevin Henkes. When I was a little girl, my mom let me choose a purse from the store. It was a purple purse, of course!
Grade 3: Because Brian Hugged His Mother by David L. Rice. I love this heartwarming book about how a simple act created a chain of kindness through a community in one day.
Grade 4: There Once was a Man name Michael Finnigan adapted by Mary Ann Hoberman. Silly and sweet.
Grade 5: Part 1 Boy in Motion Rick Hansen's Story by Ainslie Manson.
