But my favorite Salina Yoon book is her new picture book called BE A FRIEND. The book seems absolutely perfect to me. It is a simple book with a powerful message. There is so much to think and talk about. I read the book to my 3rd graders early this week and we could have talked for hours. It is a book that has already been revisited several times as readers notice new details in the text and have new thoughts about what it means to be kind, to be a friend. It is the first MUST-OWN of 2016, I think:-)
The book trailer was premiered on Mr. Schu's blog along with a letter from Salina Yoon.
