Title: One Small Place in a Tree
Author: Barbara Brenner
Summary: This book describes the many animals that live out of one tree. It has great pictures and is a good book to talk about community and diversity.
Accompanying Discussion: Use this story to demonstrate how our school is like the tree, and is also a community in a sense. Ask students to name the many people that make up the school community(teachers, students, custodians, etc.).
Accompanying Activities: Have each student color a leaf and have them glue them on to a big tree drawn onto the wall or white board.
