This is the perfect time to remind them how to be good friends too.
You may know her book Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun: Having the Courage to Be Who You Are, which is always a hit with the kiddos! Her new book, The Potato Chip Champ, is just as outstanding!
This book tells the story of Champ and Walter. Champ, who loves baseball and potato chips, doesn't love Walter. In fact, he doesn't like him at all... and he can't figure out why anyone else likes him either. However, at the end, Walter's kindness changes Champ's mind!
This is a great book about friendship in the face of adversity, walking a mile in someone else's shoes, and, as the cover says, "Discovering Why Kindness Counts"!
I love Maria's books because her true and ultimate goal is to help build character in her readers- truly.
