THIS IS A GREAT BOOK THAT KIDS WILL ENJOY READING! IT MIMICS THE STAR OF THE WEEK PROCESS THAT MOST PRESCHOOLS AND KINDERGARTEN CLASSROOMS PARTICIPATE IN. IT HELPS KIDS UNDERSTAND WHAT IT MEANS TO BE STAR OF THE WEEK, BUT REMINDS THEM TO ALSO HAVE FUN!
Great book. I love books with lessons. This book has many ideas to talk about. Stanley is so excited about being star of the week. He gets to share many things about himself that he enjoys. But, he finds disappointment with his class when they don't share his passion for things. Great lesson about being unique and that's okay. One little girl has a particular bad attitude about the things Stanley shares. This is disappointing for Stanley until he finds out not everyone feels the same way. Great lessons to be learned that there are negative people out in the world, but you don't have to let them discourage you. Also, just because you find a negative person doesn't mean everyone feels the same way.
I ordered this book because my first graders do squiggle pictures then write about their pictures. This book was perfect to teach that with. They loved the story and I loved the idea the book presented. It went right along with their squiggle pictures! Great book!
This is a very nice story. It's fairly short but has a great message. It is wonderful for kids who love to draw, especially ones that might not be the most popular kid in the class.
sweet story to show kids how hard it is to be excepted at a little one. NICE message
Perfect to send home with my class' star of the week each week! I use this with Erica Bohrer's star of the week pack from TPT.Thanks!
