Library Lil
Library Lil - Suzanne Williams, Steven Kellogg (Illustrator)

Library Lil is a silly book about a librarian like no other. She breaks the librarian stereotype with her unique personality and even managed to get the rowdiest of people to take to reading.

Library Lil recieved a 570L on the Lexile readability scale which would make it suitable for students around the fourth grade level. This would be a good book to teach about breaking stereotypes as Lil strays from the traditional librarian role. Other characters in the story also break the stereotype norm as the book progresses.

Real Cowboys
Real Cowboys - Kate Hoefler,Jonathan Bean

Real Cowboys is a book about cowboys and how they are people just like us. It provides a sweet and moving insight to a side of cowboys that we do not often think about.

Earning a score of 8.4 on the Gunning-Fog scale, the book can be a bit difficult due to its long sentences. The vocabulary can be a bit tough for younger students, so this book would work best as a teacher led read-aloud for a class of older age students. 

This book would be great to use to teach about dispelling stereotypes. Having students compare what they know about cowboys from the media and the information they find in this book would be a great activity to teach students that people aren't always how they are portrayed to be.
