The Little Red Hen Makes a Pizza by Philemon Sturges
The Little Red Hen (Makes a Pizza) - Philomen Sturges,Amy Walrod

A classic folktale takes on a modern new twist when the Little Red Hen decides to make a pizza in The Little Red Hen Makes a Pizza.  This tale is about a hen who is in desperate need of help running errands and gathering supplies while making her pizza. But to her dismay, her friends were too busy playing to help her until it was time to eat the pizza.  The friends learn a valuable lesson and experience a change in heart after their selfless friend shares despite their selfish ways.  I would use this book with my students to teach compare and contrast using the characters of the story.  I would also integrate this book study in with my literacy and math centers using the pizza theme and finish off with having my students make their own pizzas.

Show and Tell Bunnies by Kathryn Lasky
Show and Tell Bunnies - Kathryn Lasky

Show and Tell Bunnies is a captivating and heartwarming story about a first grader named Clyde, who is filled with worries and fear before his first show and tell day at school.  He searches high and low for an interesting object to bring to school and finally settles on a mysterious fuzzy treasure to bring to class. The object turned out to be a huge surprise and a big hit with his friends as spiderlings hatched from the fuzzy treasure.  The author did an amazing job capturing all the true emotions that a young student might experience at the start of a new school year.  This book would be an excellent choice to read to my lower elementary grades at the beginning of the school year or before our first show and tell.  I would also use this story to integrate a study on spiders in science.
