Roses Are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink - Diane deGroat, Diane deGroat

Roses are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink is a captivating title that just begs a reader to dive in, especially a young reader. Gilbert, the main character in the book, writes two unkind Valentine's to two of his classmates, but instead of signing his name, he signs the Valentines using their names instead! Chaos ensues, and eventually Gilbert discovers that his clever Valentine swap was really a terrible idea. Gilbert confronts the two classmates about the issues that were bothering him in the first place, and presents his peers with two new Valentines. The classmates all apologize to each other, and become friends. This is a perfect book to introduce during Valentine's. It's also a great book to introduce the concept of cause and effect. Youtube offers a seven minute video of the book being read by Heather Long that is cute. You can also talk about the beginning, middle and end in the story.
