A Must-Read Book for Your Class Library

Trying to build and strengthen your classroom community? One way to do it is to shine a light on empathetic behavior.

I've posted my thoughts about teaching empathy here and highlighted a few books that perfectly demonstrate empathetic behavior that kids can easily understand.

So yesterday, I wondered how I am only now discovering such a fabulous book that shows such an amazing empatheic and compassinate character, Marissa, in The Tooth by Avi Slodovnick.

Full disclosure: I've seen the cover on Storylineonline dozens of times but the cover never grabbed my attention and I always scrolled past it.



The video is only 5 minutes long and it is PERFECT. 


(I noticed the video doesn't show up on mobile devices so here is the link: The Tooth,)

What did you think? Did you love it as much as I did?  

Will you be using it in your classroom?  

I'd love to hear your reaction. If you have any other book recommendations, please share.

Have a great day!
