How to Build Community in the Classroom with Oliver Poons and friends

Oliver Poons and the Bright Yellow Hat can be read in the beginning of the school year to develop classroom community. True communities of learners have a comfort and support system where they can share joy, triumphs, fun, and sometimes sadness.

Oliver Poons was able to figure out his problem with the help of his friends so the story lends itself easily to discussions about the importance of helping others and teamwork.
