Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons
Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons - Eric Litwin,James Dean

Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons draws readers along with Pete the Cat. This time Pete the Cat is wanting to go outside and play. However, a problem arises when Pete realizes he's missing a button! This book would be really good for Kindergarten through 2nd grade. I would read this with my future classroom and make it into a integrated lesson.  After reading the book and going over some leading questions to help build comprehension, I would have the students help me create a coat by adding buttons. Simple right? Well our coats would have only the amount of buttons in the equations we are working on for each coat with 6 different coats to add buttons to.

Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses
Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses - James Dean

Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses is another book by James Dean that captivates readers. Things do go as planned for Pete this time and he's all grumpy. However, when he runs into a friend his frown is turned upside down with a pair of sunglasses. The day looks a lot happier with his new sunglasses. When he comes across another friend having a bad day, he can't wait to share his sunglasses!  I feel this book is great to use with grades kindergarten to 4th grade. It promotes a positive attitude and helping others to do the same. I firmly believe you can choose to be happy and have a good day.  I would definitely use this book in my future classroom. After reading the book, I would ask the students how they could change things around if they or a friend are having a grumpy bad day. I would have them break them up into small groups and have them make a card or picture for someone in class (assigned by teacher so everyone gets one) to make their day seem a little brighter.

Underpants for Ants
Underpants for Ants (Usborne Phonics Readers) - Russell Punter

Nan discovers freezing ants in her kitchen one cold wet winter's night. So, what would any sensible grandmother do?  Why knit them something to keep the warm! Nan knits her guests some sensible underpants to keep the tiny ants warm and soon her knitting business is taken by storm.  This book would be great for emergent readers as it focuses on phonics. I would recommend this book for kindergarten and first grade.  After reading the story as a class a good lesson would be to have the students draw and/or write depending on their level the sequence that events happen in the book and have each share what knitted item they would like if they were cold. 

Reading Level: Pre-K to 2nd grade

Nina, Nina, and the Copycat Ballerina
Nina, Nina and the Copycat Ballerina - Jane O'Connor,Dyanne Disalvo

This book is great for emergent readers in a kindergarten class.  There are many repetitive sight words for a reader to practice.  The story also could help teach about being yourself but also being respectful of friends.  In this story, Nina meets a new student named Nina who starts to copy everything she does!  This drives Nina crazy!  In the end, they become great friends with their own personalities!

Rating: 3.5 stars

Goodread's Page

My Review: Having loved the first book in this series so much, i dived right into this one upon finishing Beta. Sadly i was disappointed a bit.

It dragged in the middle badly. Probably could've taken out like 100 pages and the story still would've been fine.

This just didn't live up to the same hype the first one did.

I still will continue the series because the ending still left a lot of things unanswered or they didn't even really address it at all in the book even thou it was something major in the last book!!!
