Yo! Yes?
by Chris Raschka 

yo_yes.jpgThemes: Communication, Listening, Diversity, Upstander

Grade: 2-8 

Story Synopsis: With only 35 words and very expressive illustrations, this book tells the story of two seemingly-different boys meeting and deciding to become friends.

Why We Love This Book: We use this energetic book to teach a variety of topics. With its emphasis on body language and expression, it is a natural pick for teaching the importance of clear communication. The differences between the two characters (different races, outgoing vs. shy, confident vs. insecure, etc.) facilitate discussions about diversity and finding common ground. We also like using this book to illustrate how one person really can make a positive difference by using his/her S.T.A.R. Power and being an Upstander.
