Over Thanksgiving break I read The Calder Game by Blue Balliett, illustrated by Brett Helquist. Not a bad little mystery. Students may learn a little art history while reading this one. Great for your puzzle and mystery readers.
Picked up a few Mo Willems books I needed for the library. LOVE THEM! I'm personaly convinced the man is a genius! If you don't have the following titles, get them for your K-2 students. They all ranked 5 stars!
The 3 Little Dassies by Jan Brett. This one is great to go with your Three Little Pigs stories. I love Jan Brett! 5 Stars!
Sneeze, Big Bear, Sneeze! by Maureen Wright, illustrated by Will Hillenbrand
Great story to add to my fall collection of read alounds. Big Bear thinks he is causing all kinds of things to happen by sneezing, but it's really the autumn wind. Cute story.
Found Fox Tails: Four Fables from Aesop by Amy Lowry. This one will be great for my lower grade teachers teaching fables. Common Core really emphasizes fables with 2nd grade. A much needed read for my fable collection. Beautifully done.
Otis and the Tornado by Loren Long. I fell in love with Otis this summer. Can't wait to read this one to the Kindergartners. Will be a great story to read during Severe Weather week in the spring. 5 stars for this one.
Last but not least I read Babymouse: Dragonslayer by Jennifer Holm and Matthew Holm. I'm not a huge fan of graphic novels. BUT I get them for my students who love them. They will enjoy this one much more than I did.
