A Children's Classic!
Where The Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak

A classic children's book that presents imagination and creativity to children. It has illustrations that grow bigger and bigger as Max's imagination grows bigger and bigger until he is lost in his own world. Students can really benefit from its descriptive characteristics and its relatability. One great activity would be to give students comprehension task cards to complete in centers. Examples of these task cards can be found here, https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Where-The-Wild-Things-Are-Task-Cards-Reading-Comprehension-3165179 

Grade Level: Pre-K-5

Lexile measure: AD740L

If You Give a Moose a Muffin
If You Give a Moose a Muffin Book and Audio CD Set (Paperback) - Laura Numeroff,Felicia Bond

If You Give a Moose a Muffin is a fun story about a moose that is given a muffin, then wanting jam to go with it, then he'll want to go to the store to get more muffin mix. I read this story along with If You Give a Mouse a Cookie when I was a child, and I enjoyed both of these stories.


This book would be great to use in a kindergarten or first grade classroom. You could either do a lesson on cause and effect, or sequencing. For cause and effect, you can together make a cause and effect anchor chart and determine which events in the stories are caused or affected by which. You could also make a sequencing anchor chart and have the students put the events in order.

The Relative's Came
The Relatives Came - Cynthia Rylant


Pre k - 2

The Relatives Came is about a family who takes a trip across the country to visit with family.  The book describes the things that the family does during their trip and how the family reacts when they get there.  I would use this book in my classroom for text-to-self connections.  I would teach my students that they can take the information in the books that they read and connect it to their own lives to gain understanding.

5 stars

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs - Lexile level 400L
best-selling picture book inspired selection of the world - the real three little pigs Story - Unknown

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, written by Jon Scieszka, is the story of The Three Little Pigs, but the story is from the wolf's point of view. It shows an entirely new perspective to the story of The Three Little Pigs by having the wolf tell how he  believes the story actually happened. It has the wolf tell his side of the story and explain how he believes things went down. I believe that this would be a great book to use in a comparing and contrasting lesson by having them also read the original story of The Three Little Pigs and then having them fill out an anchor chart for comparing and contrasting between the two. You could also have different comparing and contrasting activity centers that you could do with this book. By using this book it helps keep them engaged and interested in the story. I would use this book for grades First through Third.

The Night before ST. Patrick's Day -Lexile level AD660L
The Night Before St. Patrick's Day - Natasha Wing,Amy Wummer

The Night before ST. Patrick's Day, written by Natasha Wing, is a book about two children and how they prepare for ST. Patrick's Day. It is very similar to Twas the Night before Christmas, but is based on ST. Patrick's Day instead. I love this book because I love ST. Patrick's Day. To me this holiday sometimes is underrated in schools, and I believe that any kind of Holiday is a good way to bring some fun into the classroom. There are many different activities that we could do after reading this book, for example, I could take them outside on a four leaf clover hunt. I could also have them make their own four leaf clovers and have them write the theme, setting, characters, and plot on each separate leaf.That is way you can have a reading comprehension lesson as well as a fun activity related to the book. I could also have all the children wear green that day to add a little bit more fun to the activity and day. I would use this book for Kindergarten to Third grade.
