Ivy Loves to Give by Freya Blackwood

Blackwood, Freya Ivy Loves to Give.  Arthur A. Levine (Scholastic), 2010. PICTURE BOOK.   Little Ivy loves to go around giving presents, but lots of times the present is just not quite right.  As Ivy puts everything back, she is not quite sure that she wants to return them all.  Ivy’s story is sweet and highly recognizable to the sibling, parent or caretaker of happy little children.  It would be a great opener to talk to younger ones about respecting other people’s property and asking to borrow something instead of just taking.  Pre-K – OPTIONAL. Cindy, Library Teacher.
