Ok, so what are 5 of my favorite picture books?
Miss Brooks Loves Books! (and I don't) is a super cute book! It's about a librarian who shares her love and excitement for books. And the little girl struggles with finding the right kind of book that gets her excited about reading. I usually read this at the beginning of the year!
I love Kevin Henkes books! I'm sure many of you know about Wemberly Worried. It's about a mouse who is worried about EVERYTHING! This is also a great book for the beginning of the year!
The Giving Tree is always a favorite. I usually do a big unit/author study with Shel Silverstein.
I usually read The Gardener when teaching about Inferring. It's a story about a girl who goes to live with her uncle who never smiles. The girl creates a surprise for him at the end of the story.
The Story of Ferdinand. I never actually read this story until I saw it in the movie "The Blind Side" (GREAT move, right?) Then my hubby bought it for me to read to my class. I love this book!
