Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes. A great book for kids about learning to love their names and what makes them unique.
Picture Book by Kevin Henkes -This is a great book about a little mouse named Chrysanthemum. She loves her name, but gets bullied for it at school. It is an adorable book about being yourself and treating everyone how you want to be treated.

A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L'Engle (1963, Newbery Winner). Just stop what you're doing and read it. It was one of my favorite books as a child.
Madeleine L'Engle (1918-2007), shares her place among writers like Harper Lee (To Kill a Mockingbird); George Orwell (Animal Farm); Charles Dickens (Great Expectations), and Nathaniel Hawthorne (The Scarlet Letter). Any book by this author is a book worth reading.

The Mitten by Jan Brett - One of my favorite children's books
The Mitten by Jan Brett #christmas #books #janbrett
The Mitten: A Ukrainian Folktale by Jan Brett: Jan Brett's amazing illustrations make her books truly above the norm. This story, about a lost mitten and the dozens of forest animals who want to use it--together--as their home, is charming. What makes the book so special, though, is the way the drawings framing each page tell another aspect of the story. All of Brett's books are worth reading with your child, but this one is a favorite.
