Little Bill's friends are teasing him! They say he's in love!
Will he get them to stop?

Now available in Scholastic Reader!

Little Bill has a crush, and it's on his classmate Mia! But he doesn't know how to handle these new emotions. He feels awkward when the other kids tease him, and he runs away whenever he sees her.

Soon Valentine's Day arrives, and Little Bill makes a card for Mia with a poem inside, but he is too shy to give it to her. The other kids don't seem to have a problem sharing their cards, though, so Little Bill finally decides that he will give his card to Mia.

And he learns that it's better to let people know that you like them!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2Two more beginning readers that emphasize character building and finding positive resolutions for difficult situations. In Shipwreck Saturday, Little Bill takes a sailboat that he has painstakingly built to a nearby lake to see if it will float. However, the vessel is wrecked by the strong wake made by a passing rowboat. He runs home in tears only to be called back by his friends who have used the remaining pieces to make a kite that they are flying high in the sky. In Super-Fine Valentine, Little Bill wants to give a girl a Valentine but is concerned that his classmates will make fun of him. He overcomes his self-consciousness and ultimately makes a new friend. Honeywood's bright, folk-art illustrations visualize Little Bill's emotions and reinforce the point of each story. These titles can help youngsters pick up some hints on handling themselves in different situations. Slight but serviceable additions where values clarification is needed.Cheryl Cufari, Glencliff Elementary School, Niskayuna, NY

Since I read this book and my son has learned from it, he has shown much social behavior in his 1st grade class. He is now in love with a girl, who has told me so at a recent school gathering, and she is Hispanic, and my son is colorblind, and he's all the better for it. Thanks, Bill Cosby!
