When a puffin named Steve meets another puffin who is also named Steve, the competition is on! One of them hast to be the best, most Stevest Steve, right? This competition quickly escalates and turns into name calling and hurt feelings. Can the Steves work out their differences (or similarities)?

With bold pictures and mounting tension, The Steves will make a great read aloud. Teachers (and parents) will want to read the book before presenting it to kids to make sure the name calling isn’t too much for their kiddos or that it can be thoroughly discussed as a bad choice with kids. Overall, the book is funny and will make kids laugh while realizing somethings are just silly to argue over.

Mo Willems is a perennial favorite. There isn’t a book of his that my kids haven’t enjoyed. In Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, the pigeon tries his best to let you the reader say it’s okay for him to drive the bus when the regular driver takes a short break. Kids love that the pigeon talks directly to them and that they can interact with the book.
