Always be Nice is a short book for young children promoting kindness and manners and can be used as an early reader. The book is perfect for building confidence in reading with only 28 words most of which are simple words. This book also teaches kids ten important lessons about being kind to others.
Each lesson is introduced by an animal with a name that uses alliteration, eg Gerty Goat, Wally Walrus. These animals are a feature of Free Kids Books’ life lessons sight words series: FKB Be Nice series.

Hi! This seems to be a great resource site! I managed to open the ‘read online’ version of Ginger the Giraffe but EVERYTHING else comes up as not available yet… when i went back to see if i could open Ginger the Giraffe again it also said not available to read online yet… Seems like a glitch or something. I’d love to explore more of these resources without downloading them.
Please advise 🙂
