A Great First Day Book.
Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes - Eric Litwin,James Dean

Pete the Cat is so much fun to read aloud with your students. They can use inferences to determine where Pete is throughout the book and sing along with the jingle that Pete sings. It is a great book to wipe out those worrisome fears and engage your students. Students could complete a cause and effect handout and then create their own Pete the Cat with his own school shoes. You could even create a class book, such as this, https://www.pinterest.com/pin/5911043234398880/ .

The Fortune Tellers
The Fortune-Tellers - Lloyd Alexander,Trina Schart Hyman

AR: 4.6

Grade Level: K-2

Summary: This book is about a carpenter who thought his life would stay the same, as it was. So he often wondered, hmmm. What will my fortune hold? He then went to a fortune teller to see what his fortune was. His fortune eventually became true with a series of events. 

Idea: This book introduces a series of cause and effect relationships. It also intoduces vocabulary that many children may not have encountered, yet. I will most definitely be using this book for a lesson on context clues. A fun activity that I would like to include with this book, as well, would be writing to your future self. We would not so much be telling our fortunes, but instead seeing where want to be in the near future.

The Lorax
The Lorax - Dr. Seuss

He speaks for the trees! I love this vibrant work by Dr. Seuss. I think most of the charm of this book comes from the usage of made-up words. Seuss's made up characters make children giggle and use their imagination! I could use this book for all kinds of activities! I would love to read this on Earth Day. I think it would be great for students to research pollution and its effects on the environment after reading this text. Another great activity for young readers to try is a cause and effect study like the one I found here:

You're Not The Only One Having A Bad Day
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day - Ray Cruz,Judith Viorst

Guided Reading Level: M

Grade Level: K-2nd

Summary: Alexander is having the worst day of his life! It's so bad, he wants to move to Australia. Let's be honest. Haven't we all had days like this? This book is something that young readers can absolutely relate to, and that's what I love about it! One could teach children that every day will not be perfect. Sometimes people go through things. However, these things make you a better person because you learn from them. They're what make you who you are!

Idea: I will most definitely be using this book for a cause and effect lesson. I will also use this book to house a class discussion on what makes a good day, as well as a bad one. The more students are able to relate to the text, the more information they will be able to gain from it!
