Enough to Go Around: A Story of Generosity by Kristin Johnson –OPTIONAL

Johnson, Kristin Enough to Go Around: A Story of Generosity. PICTURE BOOK. Millbrook (Lerner), 2018. $20. 9781512486483

This is about a boy named Michael who finds out that not everyone has the same access to enough food that he does. He decides he wants to help and has an idea for a food drive, and leads the charge at his school. Features large color illustrations.

I like this book because its proactive –a student see’s a problem and finds a way to solve it. But not all schools can do food drives –some of the schools are the ones that need food drives done for them. If your school does an annual food drive, this would be a great way to introduce the concept to younger grades. I would have preferred a more generic book about everyday ways to show generosity.
