Bats at the beach? Kindergarteners enjoyed the book! The author also drew beautiful illustrations. This is appropriate for a unit on bats/nocturnal animals, or one on the beach/summer activities.

From Kirkus: "Reassuring and clear, this is a heartfelt story about loss and discovering that one can love again."

This book would be good for primary students. This book is "The Rough Patch" written and illustrated by Brian Lies, and published in 2018. This book is about a Fox who is a grander and his dog. They are best friends and do everything together until the dog dies and his garden because desolate and full of weeds until a pumpkin vine begins to grow. The vine produces a huge pumpkin thatt wins a contest and he wins a new puppy. I would for sure use this book in my classroom as it has a great message of that even though despair happens, good things always grow out of hard times.… (mere)
