chicks and cats
CHICK-O-SAURUS REX by Lenore and Daniel Jennewein. Simon and Schuster, 2013.
A little chicken allows those bigger than he is to prevent him from doing all that he would like to do. And then he makes a discovery that changes how he views himself. It is amazing that this change will also affect how others see him, too.
A YEAR WITH MARMALADE by Alison Reynolds with illustrations by Heath McKenzie. Little Simon, 2013.
Ella and Maddy are best friends. When Maddy has to move away for a while, she asks Ella to keep her cat, Marmalade. Neither Marmalade nor Ella is happy at first. Gradually, they become less wary and more close. This story of how friendships develop is perfect for reading aloud.
