Yeti and the Bird
by Nadia Shireen
Yeti lives in the forest and is feared by all of the creatures. He is very lonely. Then, one day, a bird interacts with him and they become friends. All of the other forest creatures learn from their relationship that the yeti is an awesome friend.
The illustrations are so great, with a triangular, hairy, tiny headed yeti. They are mixed media and there are interesting animals and background characters that are fun to find! This is a great story about friends, outsiders and including everyone!

Cute illustrations combined with a bit of problem solving and inclusive thinking, and all is right with the world. This is a great book to start discussions about working as a team and playing to each other's strengths while acknowledging that everyone may not be able to do things the same.

Amanda's eleventh birthday should be fun and happy. Instead, she is forced into having a party with a Hollywood theme - not really her thing - and her ex-best friend, Leo is having an amazing party with things that she would love! She can't wait for the day to be over and to not have to think about it again...except when she wakes up the next day, it's her eleventh birthday all over again.
What's going on? Amanda wakes up with everyday as her birthday, and she has to figure out how to get unstuck. Is there something she can do to change the outcome of her birthday and move on to the next day?
