The Recess Queen

Mean Jean was the Recess Queen. Nobody swung until Mean Jean swung. Nobody kicked until Mean Jean kicked. So starts off the funny story of a playground bully who has her ways changed when the new girl Katie Sue comes to school. This book is full of great rhymes, made up words and lots of room for questions about how we should play nicely with others, take turns and keep our hands and feet to ourselves.
Can get kids involved with repeated lines and they will think they are reading too. The illustrations are excellent and it's a real quick read if you need something to entertain when you have a few extra minutes. Best for ages 4-8. Written by Alexis O'Neill

I'll have to check this out. I pretty much only give books to my nephews so should check this one out as a potential Halloween gift! 2 of them are in Pre-K/K, so I bet either of them would enjoy it!

I definitely have to get that book! I think I've heard of it but never read it.

This looks like a great children's book. I have started making a list of books I want in my classrooms and I will have to add this to it!
