Fifteen Dollars and Thirty-Five Cents: A Story About Choices

(4) K-3 Illustrated by Qin Leng. Joseph is thrilled when he finds money on the playground, but his friend Devon thinks they should try to find out who lost it. Devon is torn between loyalty to his friend and his sense of what's right until a wise teacher helps him find a way to honor both. A wordy text effectively delivers the lesson. Cartoon illustrations show diverse students with particularly expressive faces.
