Stuck
By Oliver Jeffers - Stuck - Oliver Jeffers

I LOVE OLIVER JEFFERS. His texts are jubilant and silly. The images are beautifully illustrated, and will have the reader flipping through in no time! Stuck tells us the story of Floyd. Poor Floyd got his kite stuck in a tree, and he can't get it down. He begins to throw all kinds of things at the tree in hopes of knocking it down. This book would be perfect for identifying problems and solutions. Because Jeffers has quite an extensive list of books under his belt, teachers could use him for an author study. Accompany with a read a loud by the author himself!

They All Saw A Cat
They All Saw a Cat - Brendan Wenzel

This text is definitely a short read, but I think teachers can incorporate it into any classroom! The text is accompanied by gorgeous illustrations that fill the entire page. These illustrations were created with various tools, so the reader is constantly engaged. I think it would be fun to collaborate with the art teacher while studying this text. The students could definitely write about the different perspectives seen throughout the book. This text could also overlap into science! Students could study animal eyesight, and use the text to write about what animals might see.

The Day the Crayons Quit
The Day the Crayons Quit - Drew Daywalt,Oliver Jeffers

Who doesn't love this fun story? This silly tale depicts the struggles faced by a box a crayons that belong to Duncan. I love to read this aloud to young readers. There are many opportunities to add ridiculous voices and accents that little minds love. This book could be used in math to graph which colors students like to color with the most. I would also consider using this text for Science. It would be interesting to study how long it takes for crayons to wear down, or what happens when different amounts of pressure is applied. I would even suggest using this book to accompany a class art project! I would allow students to glue crayons to a canvas and use a blowdryer to melt them. Imagine how proud they would be if you displayed this work in the classroom!

No, David!
No, David! - David Shannon

This book is great for students in 1st or 2nd grade and to use as a demonstration of the power of pictures in books. On each page, there was barely any words, but the pictures spoke for the whole book. The journey David undergoes of getting into mischief like an everyday child would be very relatable to the children in the classroom. The Lexile level was BR. For a first reader's book, this would be perfect since there was only a few words per page. An activity I think would be fun with this book would be to have students illustrate their own picture of something David did they get in trouble for too at home to make the book relatable. Overall, great book to really show the power of illustrations!
