Piggie Pie
Piggie Pie! - Margie Palatini,Howard Fine

Are you smart enough to outsmart a witch? Thats what you should ask young readers when they finish this story! Piggie Pie is a precious book that details the story of a witch on the prowl for some piggies. This book is full of adjectives and alliterations! Students could go on an adjective search while reading this book. I would personally love to work with other teachers on my grade level to produce a live reading of this text using our students as actors!

Sharing Is Caring!
Should I Share My Ice Cream? - Mo Willems

This adorably illustrated book brings a wonderful real-life example of what it means to share. It is about an elephant who debates whether or not he should share his ice cream with his best friend, Piggy. In the end, he waits so long that his ice cream melts, but Piggy shows up with a sweet surprise to cheer him up.  I love that this book also shows the value of friendship and how to share at a level that kids can relate to. Some great activities for this book could be to have students write a narrative about friends sharing, or have students make an ice cream cone and write what they value about a friend, and then share that cone. This book would also be good to jump into adjectives with.

Hairy, Scary, Ordinary: What Is an Adjective? - Brian P. Cleary,Jenya Prosmitsky

This book is a creative, colorful, and exciting way to to introduce adjectives to students by whimsical illustrations and funny sentences. I would use this in my classroom to introduce the idea of adjectives in sentences, and then guide the students to make sentences using adjectives and to circle them. I would use this for many elementary ages, but is ideal for 2nd grade. This book is Lexile Level NP. Great for usage in the classroom.

Fancy Nancy
Fancy Nancy - Jane O'Connor,Robin Preiss Glasser

Fancy Nancy is my favorite series for lower elementary grades. It tells the adventures of a young girl and it is an easy read. The students could read the story and do a lesson on adjectives. Also, the students could have a lesson on character analysis considering Nancy is a very interesting character. This story is also a good introduction to synonyms because there are many words in this book that may be new to most students. The class could explore these words and what they mean as well as create a chart to draw connections to similar words.
