Back of Book:
Roxy Ramirez has saved up for weeks to buy a chemistry set, and now she’s headed to the toy store to buy it! There’s only one problem: along the way, she keeps running into friends who are in trouble, and need her to dip into her savings to help. Will she have enough money left over to buy something for herself?
I received a copy of this book from author Caryn Rivadeneira in exchange for an honest review.
My district is adopting a social and emotional learning time in the classrooms. Every morning during breakfast. I am so excited to share this picture book with my class and discuss the concept of generosity
I often hear the words “Its not fair” coming from my students. It is a concept that all children struggle with. I love that this story focuses on how Roxy helps people turn their not fair moments into fun moments. I love that the text teaches readers about saving money, and spending it wisely. The end of the story has a satisfying and important ending. The back of the book has a note for parents, and educators about the importance of teaching generosity to children. The illustrations are fun and show a diverse group of friends. I am looking forward to sharing this story with my class.
