Good News Bad News by Jeff Mack

I love this seemingly simple book because it opens up the possibility for class interaction.  Rabbit and Mouse are two friends are headed out to enjoy a picnic when the rain starts.  Rabbit is determined to find the "silver lining" and rat is determined to, well NOT!  Back and forth, the text is the same words over and over.  This book provides a great springboard for discussion about illustrations and allow students to tell the story beyond the text provided.
