I just love books by wonderful, award winning Laura Vaccaro Seeger. I Used to be Afraid is a gorgeous, simple tale of transformation. I read it aloud to a group of Kindergarten students and they loved it. The book invoked many connections for the kids, and they were dying to share their stories.

Laura Vaccaro Seeger who also wrote Green, available in French as Vert, and Les Citrons Ne Sont Pas Rouges, both of which work very well in French and English.


My favourite LVS book just might be Bully, the story of a young bull who takes out his anger on others only to regret the consequences. Will there be redemption and transformation for him? Another favourite read aloud.

How are you feeling?

With stunning illustrations and brilliant colours, each page features a fish and one emotion.



I loved reading this this book with the younger students, asking them to show me with their faces each emotion. Goes perfect with their Second Step program.

I love this picture book by Christpher Aslan in which the only word is dude. Dude is written in many fonts and sizes, which, along with the illustrations, have the reader guessing what emotions Dude is feeling in each situation.

Check the back to see what the author says.

Great interactive read aloud, story drama.
