Good story to read to little girls to promote getting along , fairness and to just be nice to everyone. The example of the proverbial " 3 is a crowd " but ---" work with it " !!
And be nice and get along .

Our students really enjoyed this book. I like the message of forgiveness - giving someone another chance is a wonderful message for the kids! We did some lovely drama using tableaux enabling the students to really understand the character's feelings and motivations.

Lilly-Jean does not have to be mean. She needs to remember other people's feelings.
