"I have worked my way through the book "The Behavior Code: A Practical Guide to Understanding and Teaching the Most Challenging Students" by Jessica Minahan and Nancy Rappaport. It is the first book in a long time that I highly recommend to parents (whether your kids are in public school or you homeschool), teachers, school counselors and other professionals in the field."

THE TIN FOREST by Helen Ward, illustrated by Wayne Anderson
In the middle of a dark, lonely wasteland filled with old scrap metal lives an old man. Every night he dreams of a lively forest, full of sunshine, plants, birds, and animals. Every morning he wakes to gloom and bad weather. Then one day, he comes up with an idea to change things. But can an idea turn rain into sunshine? Can a dream make plants grow? The rich, detailed illustrations and lyrical text of The Tin Forest carry an important message of imagination and hope. (Ages 3-5)

Blue Chicken by Deborah Freedman An enterprising chicken attempts to help an artist paint the barnyard and accidentally turns the whole picture blue.
This gem was authored and illustrated by CT's own Deborah Freedman! It received starred reviews from Kirkus, Booklist, and School Library Journal and was on countless "Best of 2011" lists. Click on the book cover to see if it's available at the Otis Library.
BLUE CHICKEN ($15.99, Viking Children's Books, ages 2 and up) is one of my favorite picture books because it tells a wonderful story with imaginative illustrations and very few words.

Frederick By Leo Lionni While the other field mice gather corn, nuts, wheat and straw to store for the winter, Frederick gathers sun rays, colors and words to be able to feed their spirits during the coldest, darkest days of winter. We have read this a few times, I remember reading it as a kid.

Engaging young minds with picture books
Frederick, by Leo Lionni - While the other field mice work to gather grain and nuts for winter, Frederick sits on a sunny rock by himself. “I gather sun rays for the cold dark winter days,” he tells them. Another day he gathers “colors,” and then “words.” And when the food runs out, it is Frederick, the dreamer and poet, whose endless store of supplies warms the hearts of his fellow mice, and feeds their spirits during the darkest winter days.
