Picture Book Discovery!

On a recent vacation to the upper peninsula of Michigan, I stumbled upon a wonderful picture book in a gift shop, Agate written by Joy Morgan Dey and illustrated by Nikki Johnson.  It is a story about being comfortable with who you are and letting yourself "shine".  It is an inspiring story for kids and adults alike.  Nikki Johnson's watercolor artwork is equally as inspiring.  I am thrilled to be starting this school year with this read aloud and just had to share it with you.  Agate has become one of my top ten favorite picture books of all time!

Download the above writing activity and bulletin board idea to accompany this book on my Teachers Pay Teachers page. It's a freebie! Enjoy!
