This book is about a little boy who moves to a poorer part of town. He does not have any friends at school and has no one to talk to. He does not have anywhere to play until he discovers an old chalk factory. The little boy begins to draw flowers and designs on the sides of the building and he grows through his art. I would like to use this story to allow the students to make new friends. I would place pieces of paper at each student's desk. They would go around and write one nice comment on each student's paper. The students would have these to look at on a bad day. They would all feel loved and accepted by their peers.
