Finding Winnie: The True Story of the World’s Most Famous Bear by Lindsay Mattick
Finding Winnie: The True Story of the World's Most Famous Bear - Lindsay Mattick,Sophie Blackall

Finding Winnie: the True Story of the World’s Most Famous Bear by Lindsay Mattick is a level M on the Fountas and Pinnell reading level scale. Finding Winnie: the True Story of the World’s Most Famous Bear is about the bear behind the world famous Winnie the Pooh. A veterinarian who was going out to tend the horses decided to take in this cub and named her Winnie after his home town Winnipeg. The veterinarian took Winnie to war. This book tells the adventures Winnie had up until she ended up in the London Zoo and met a new friend named Christopher Robin. This is a great book to do during a shared reading lesson, and students could make predictions of what is going to happen during Winnie’s adventures.

Bomb: the Race to Build and Steal the World’s Most Dangerous Weapon by Steve Sheinkin
Bomb: The Race to Build—and Steal—the World's Most Dangerous Weapon - Steve Sheinkin

Bomb: the Race to Build and Steal the World’s Most Dangerous Weapon by Steve Sheinkin is a level Z on the Fountas and Pinnell reading level scale. Bomb: the Race to Build and Steal the World’s Most Dangerous Weapon is about the scientific discoveries of atom splitting, and the covert operations of enemy countries to steal it, and the work of the brilliant scientist hidden at Los Alamos. This is a great book to read while doing a history lesson of World War 2, and to teach students the damage that this weapon has caused and how dangerous it really is.

Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley
Relish: My Life in the Kitchen - Lucy Knisley

Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley is a level Z on the Fountas and Pinnell reading level scale. Relish: My Life in the Kitchen is about Lucy Knisley’s love for food. She is the daughter of a chef and the book talks about specific memories she had while growing up that started her love of food. I like that each chapter is bookended with recipes that are family recipes and things of her own creation. This book is great because you could make some of the recipes for students to try in class, and encourage students to start cooking with their parents or cook on their own with adult supervision.

Smile by Raina Telgemeir
Smile - Raina Telgemeier

Smile by Raina Telgemeir is a level T on the Fountas and Pinnell reading level scale. Smile is about Raina Telgemeir’s story of when she was in 6th grade and got her front two teeth knocked out when she was running and tripped and fell. 6th grade is already a really hard time, but not having your front two teeth is really tough. This story shows her struggles as a preteen and getting through not having her front two teeth. This would be great to read to students who are going through a hard time and having issues of confidence as a preteen. You could also tell students to write in their journal of something they don’t feel confident about and how they manage to get through that everyday.

El Deafo by Cece Bell
El Deafo - Cece Bell

El Deafo by Cece Bell is a level X on the Fountas and Pinnell reading level scale. El Deafo is about a rabbit who is deaf and is going through struggles based on dealing with her difficulties. The story begins when she is four years old and is living a normal life, but when she contracts meningitis, the disease leaves her deaf. She has to start wearing a hearing aid and has to attend a special needs kindergarten class with other deaf students. When they move to Virginia, she is hoping to have a somewhat normal life, but has some issues with making friends. Then she has to get an even larger hearing device which makes her feel even more ostracized. To help boost her confidence, she creates a superhero named El Deafo who has super hearing. This helps her find a true friend in Martha, and gives her the courage to talk to her crush Mike who shows everyone in the neighborhood that her hearing aid is super cool. This book could be great to recommend to a student that has a hearing impairment. They can create their own superhero with a super power they wish they had and show them that they too have a “superpower” of their own.
