Roses Are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink
by Diane de Groat

Gilbert writes unkind Valentine poems for two fellow students and signs their names to the poems. When his actions are discovered, he's ostracized until he musters the courage to apologize and make amends with new poems and homemade cookies.

We like that this book is more than just another cute story about exchanging Valentines. Children understand Gilbert's dilemma, and learn from his good example of apologizing and making things right after being unkind to others. A great discussion starter! This book won a number of awards, including the International Reading Association Children's Choice Award and the C.S. Lewis Medal Book Award.

This book is used but it is in good condition.  Occasionally there's the previous owner's name or inscription on the inside front cover.  Overall though, we are very proud of the quality of our books!
