FEBRUARY BOOK OF THE MONTH: Roses are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink by Diane deGroat

Roses Are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink by Diane deGroat

It’s Valentine’s Day, a day for kindness, friendship and caring.  What happens when you are not-so-nice and write two nasty Valentine’s Day cards?  Gilbert writes mean Valentine’s Day cards to two of his classmates because they do things to him he does not like.  Then he doesn't even sign his name on the cards, but theirs!  Margaret and Lewis figure out the cards are really from Gilbert and everyone in the class is mad at him.  Will Gilbert clear the air in time to have a happy Valentine’s Day?  This book has a great lesson in cause and effect, learning to share your feelings instead of being mean to one another, and the importance of forgiveness.
