Review: The Ugly PumpkinUser Review - Brianna - Goodreads
I think this is a very sad book, but also a really great one. The ugly pumpkin finds a place where he feels accepted, and finally feels happiness, after being bullied for so long. I would use this book to teach about bullying. Read full review

This is one of my favorite picture books. I have bought this book for several teachers over the years for their classroom libraries. This has a great message about everyone having a place they belong. Read full review
