Welcome to a summer series of themed books! Each week, we will feature three books our children have enjoyed that you can pick up for your family or use as part of a lesson plan for future activities in your classroom. Enjoy! Maria Dismondy
What is the single most thrilling thing that could happen to Lilly in her whole entire life? Her favorite teacher, Mr. Slinger, is getting married, and Lilly is going to be his flower girl! Well, Lilly, thinks she is going to be his flower girl. It turns out that Mr. Slinger’s niece Ginger is the official flower girl. But Lilly wasn’t called “the Scarlett O’Hara of the elementary school set” without reason. This award-winning and beautifully illustrated picture book about friendship, perseverance, loyalty, love, weddings, and family is the companion to the bestselling classic, Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse.
Here’s to a decade of being pinkariffic, pinkatastic, pinkaperfect—Pinkalicious! Pinkalicious is celebrating ten pinkamazing years of the picture book that started it all with a special sticker and an even more glittery jacket just for the occasion.
More than anything, Pinkalicious loves pink, especially pink cupcakes. Her parents warn her not to eat too many of them, but when Pinkalicious does . . . she turns pink! What to do?
This sparkling picture book, filled with such favorites as pink bubble gum, pink peonies, pink cotton candy, and pink fairy princess dresses, celebrates all things pink while showing that being yourself is best of all.
A fresh twist on the wedding party gift book, The Most Special Flower Girl offers a sweet story and beautiful color illustrations to help little girls understand what they should expect at a wedding. Brides will love the modern, giftable look and attractive price point, parents will appreciate the cues that guide kids on how to behave, and little girls will love the story of smart, sassy Sophie and how she saves the day at her aunt’s wedding.
