Hooray for Amanda and Her Alligator
Hooray for Amanda and Her Alligator is another gem from Mo Willems. In this story, Amanda's best friend is her stuffed alligator. They have a very sweet friendship based on trust and respect. Alligator trusts that Amanda will always be there for him, she'll come home ad always have a surprise for him. One day Amanda's surprise isn't quite what he expected. He realizes that sometimes things are better than you expect. I love how this friendship evolves.
In kindergarten we talk a lot about what it means to be friends. Hooray for Amanda and Her Alligator is a great story about friendship and trust.
