Albert's Quiet Quest by Isabelle Arsenault
From Random House Books for Young Readers:
Albert wants a quiet place to read…but his friends just want to play! Can they figure out how to have fun together?
Albert’s home is very loud–and all he wants to do is read! He escapes outside for some peace, and thinks he’s found it at last. But, one by one, his friends boisterously infiltrate his space until Albert just can’t take it anymore…and snaps! How will his friends react? While they leave him alone at first, they slowly return…with books in hand.
This beautifully illustrated story models flexible, empathic play, and articulates a range of ways a group can have fun together. A useful tool for any classroom or neighborhood!
