Nate Likes to Skate by Bruce Degen- OPTIONAL

Degen, Bruce. Nate Likes to Skate, PICTURE BOOK. Holiday House, 2016. $14.95. Nate loves to skate and his friend Kate loves to wear hats. They try to share interests but it doesn’t work out very well. In the end, they decide to be nicer to one another and skate together with their new, fun hats. This is an early reader book so the illustrations are based on the rhyming words in the book. Unfortunately, the characters aren’t very kind and the word “hate” is used fairly often because it rhymes with Nate. I just thought there were so many other ways this book could have been done, without the unkind word usage. PRE-K, K-3- OPTIONAL. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
