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.

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein is a level N on the Fountas and Pinnell reading level scale. The Giving Tree is a book about a tree who loves this boy. The boy loves the tree too, and he loves to play with the tree. However, the boy starts to grow up, and he doesn't come around and play with the tree as much until he stopped coming around completely. The times the boy actually came around, the boy is upset and wants things that the tree can provide but it takes pieces of her as he takes them. The tree becomes more upset the more he takes, until one day the boy is old and comes to visit the tree. The tree tells him that she has nothing to give him anymore, but the old man says all I need is a place to rest. The tree becomes so excited because an old stump is great for resting, and she gives this to him. This book makes me cry almost every time i read it. The Giving Tree could be a great book to teach students that if someone gives you something you should be grateful because you know how it feels to give something you love to someone. I have also created a lesson plan where students could retell the story by doing a problem/solution activity. Students could also make predictions through out the story, and maybe even create a new story where the boy gave things to the tree in return.

Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss
Green Eggs and Ham - Dr. Seuss

Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss is a level J according to the Fountas and Pinnell reading level scale. Green Eggs and Ham is a book about a guy named Sam and he is trying to get his "friend" to try green eggs and ham. However, his friend does NOT want to try green eggs and ham, until finally he actually tries them and likes them. I think Green Eggs and Ham is a great book for Dr. Seuss week, and you can make your students try green eggs and ham. You can even have it as your class data that day on if your students liked green eggs and ham, if they never tried green eggs and ham, or if they did not like green eggs and ham.

Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
Where The Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak

Where the Wild Things Are, by Maurice Sendak is a level J on the Fountas and Pinnell reading level scale. Where the Wild Things Are is a book about a boy named Max who is a little too wild. He gets sent to his room without dinner, but instead once he got to his room he set out on a journey to a far away land where the wild things are. He became king of the wild things, but decided that he missed being at home so he sailed back to find dinner waiting for him. This book is wonderful to help spark your students inner wild side. You can have them create their own wild thing, and they can draw a self portrait for the face.
