What would life be like if no one helped each other? Famer Duck knew, only too well, that life like this wasn't fun. The lazy famer just stayed in bed all day long while Farmer Duck did all the chores. All of the animals on the farm knew this wasn't right and decided to do something about the situation. This story is all about working together and helping each other, something we do every day at Florence Meares.

The beginning of a new school year is an exciting time. We meet many new friends. Sometimes in our coming and going to school we have the chance to meet new four-legged friends. Being a dog lover myself, I thoroughly enjoyed this book by Wendy Wahman. This how-to manual explains how to handle yourself around dogs. It reminds us to always ask the owner before we meet a new dog. This entertaining book is full of practical advice.

Sharing your favourite things with your siblings can be hard. Sharing with 20 other classmates can be even more difficult. Our Kindergarten friends enjoyed this lighthearted look at the difficulties of sharing. The main character has a tough time sharing anything with her sibling and disaster ensues as her beloved tricycle suffers the consequences. After reading this story you will know that sharing is best:-)
