Mr. Prickles (Kara LaReau)
A good story for talking about learning to get along with difficult people and including others. Also could be on the topic of seeing the good in people and in yourself.
My class really enjoyed the puns and the funny names.
Mr. Prickles was not a particularly friendly fellow. He was tough to get close to . . . because he was a porcupine.
“You're not cute like us,” said Raccoon.
“Or cuddly like us,” said Chipmunk.
“Or playful like us,” said Skunk.
“I am,” said Mr. Prickles. “On the inside.”
Poor Mr. Prickles was very lonely-until the day he met Miss Pointypants. Could she be the perfect prickly companion for moonlit strolls and midnight feasts? Was love in the air for even the sharpest of sorts?
