This is our last Monday of the semester but like always, I continued my reading challenge.
A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon
This book is something I’ve always liked from the first moment I read it. Reading this story again was such a delight and made me understand why I liked it in the first place. If you like a book with a cute story and great illustrations…this is one for you!
Enemy Pie by Derek Munson
This book was something new to me but I really enjoyed it. It is about a kid who has his very first enemy and his dad cooked an “enemy pie” in order to get the enemy. Of course, things are not always as they seem and you learn that even though things can be scary, they can have great outcomes!
Thank you, Mr. Falker by Patricia Polacco
This books touches my heart. If you haven’t read it I HIGHLY recommend it because it shows how big of a difference a teacher can make in a students life. Also, it shows that just because someone is different, does not make them stupid or an idiot. Everyone is unique and this book really shows that!
The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn
The Kissing Hand is a pretty short read but very sweet at the same time. It talks about a raccoon going to school for the first time but does not want to leave his mother behind. The mother kissed his hand and tells him to hold it to his cheek if he gets scared. This was so cute and the illustrations match the story perfectly!
The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister
This book is one that is also a pretty short read. There is a lot of good illustrations that follow the story perfectly. The main message of this book is beauty is not everything. Just because someone is beautiful doesn’t mean they will be liked.
Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
Since this is the last Monday of the semester, I wanted to read a book that I could finish in a week so I choose the classic Tuck Everlasting. I have a soft spot for this book because it was a book I read in my childhood and continue to enjoy today. I would use this book in the classroom because it is a quick read and such a great story.
Until next time,
