Every Cowgirl Goes to School by Rebecca Janni - ADVISABLE

Janni, Rebecca Every Cowgirl Goes to School, 30 pages. Penguin Group, 2013. $16.99. Language: G (0 swears, 0 “f”); Mature Content: G; Violence: G. PICTURE BOOK.  

Nelly is a cowgirl and is excited about her first day of school. She is ready with her bag of five things about her to share with her class. However, Maya, the new girl, sits next to Nelly’s best friend, Anna, and things start to unravel and not go as planned. 

This adorable story teaches about friendship, and I would definitely share it with my class during the first week of school. It sets the year off right in teaching about how to treat people that are different than you, how to be kind to the new students, and how to apologize and forgive.
