      Language Arts and Reading: The Best Story - one of the first books read each year in Writer's Workshop.  It's great for teaching where writer's get their ideas.  In the end, the main character learns that the best story comes from your heart.  After reading it, give each student a paper heart and they fill it with words/pictures of the things/people they love.

      The Best Story by Eileen Spinelli: Another great story for writing workshop! In this book, the character learns (after a lot of unhelpful “advice” from different family members) that the best stories are your own and come from the heart.
