I have lots of wonderful teacher friends, and at the beginning of the year, many of them focus on building community in their classrooms and libraries. If you’re looking to build community, inclusiveness, and friendship skills, consider sharing two of my books, Clover Kitty Goes to Kittygarten and We Belong. Clover Kitty is especially relevant to discussions around friendship skills, neurodiversity, and anxiety. We Belong is great for emphasizing diversity, belonging, and welcoming others. Just click on the links for more info and resources. Or click on the graphic below to see which SEL themes relate to some of my other books. Thanks, and I hope your year is off to a friendly and fabulous start!
