The Very Hungry Caterpillar
The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Eric Carle

The Very Hungry Caterpillar was published by Eric Carle in 1969. This story begins with a tiny egg resting against a leaf at night time. The next morning, the tiny egg hatches and out comes a caterpillar. During the week, the caterpillar constantly searched for food. The caterpillar munches holes in fruit, and human food such as cake, ice cream, pickles, and sausage. However, now there is a problem! The caterpillars tummy hurts! The caterpillar found a cleansing green leaf the next day that made him feel better. Yet again, we have another problem. The caterpillar is now huge and no longer hungry! Eventually, the caterpillar next builds a cocoon and turns into a magnificent butterfly. For an activity, I would have print outs of a blank caterpillar and provide my students with different materials to decorate their caterpillars. This book is a level 16 according to the DRA book leveling system.

This story is about a young girl by the name of Opal who has recently moved to a new town in Florida with her father that is a preacher. Opal misses her home, her friends, and her mom who has been out of the picture since she was a toddler. Opal's day suddenly got better when she went to a local Winn-Dixie super market and fell in love with a mut that was raiding the store. Opal prays her father will let her keep him... and turns out... he did! Throughout the story Opal gains a series of new friends in the community, and learns to cope with loss and how to love; it was all Because of Winn-Dixie. For an activity, I will have my students to make a list of the lessons that they learned throughout the story. This book is a level 40 according to the DRA book leveling system.

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? - Eric Carle,Bill Martin Jr.

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? was published in 1967 by Bill Martin Jr and Eric Carle. This book does not necessarily contain a plot. Throughout the story, the narrator asks a series of animals what do they see? Most of the time, the animals respond with answers reflecting other animals. Following the responses, the respondents then answer the same question. This pattern continues before eventually repeating itself. For an activity I will cutout a printable of different animals with different colors and tape one animal to each students back. Each student will take turns asking the other students and myself questions so that they may figure out which animal is on their back. This book is a level 6 according to the DRA book leveling system.

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie - Laura Joffe Numeroff,Felicia Bond

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie was published in 1985 by Laura Numeroff. This story is about a list of events that occurred after a boy gave a mouse a cookie. When the mouse receives his first cookie, he asks for a glass of milk to go with the cookie. From then on, the mouse had a long list of demanding requests that he proceeded to ask of the boy. For each event, the mouse has a new request. Some believe that this story is about teaching the principle that every action has a consequence. For an activity, I would allow my students to make their very own mouse puppets as a craft! This book is a 2.7 according to the Accelerated Reader book leveling system.
