Oh, Baby! Go, Baby! - Dr. Seuss,Jan Gerardi
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

A cute mini book inspired by Dr. Seuss's Oh, The Places You'll Go. Not as good as the original, but includes some fun interactive pieces such as two slide-to-move mechanisms and a spinning mechanism that creates a very cool effect. 

I found a copy in the Little Free Library near my house and picked it up to read with the kids at work. One of the moving mechanism pieces was missing (appears to have come unglued) so definitely a book you have to be gentle with. Wouldn't recommend for very young children without adult supervision.

Cute illustrations based on the original book. The wording was not quite as catchy as the original and a little clunky at times, but it was a cute book overall.

Cooking with the Grinch (Dr. Seuss) - Ti... Cooking with the Grinch (Dr. Seuss) - Tish Rabe,Tom Brannon
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. 

With the newest Grinch movie out and working with two little Grinch fans, when I see a Grinch book at the library, I snatch it up. I will say I have been rather disappointed with the most recent onslaught of Grinch books based on the new movie. I haven't seen the movie yet, but the books were rather dull. I grabbed this from the library, figuring it would be okay and the kids at work would enjoy looking at the pictures.

Then I finally read it. It is actually very good. For starters, I really admire Grinch books that actually rhyme. As soon as I open one to find that doesn't rhyme, my heart goes out of reading it just a little bit. What's the point of a Grinch book that doesn't rhyme? That's just my personal preference. I'm a bit biased toward the original. Continuing on. 

The story itself is also very cute. It's not just a rehash of how the Grinch tried stealing Christmas. This is a story that occurs after all that and it is amazing in its simplicity. 

Also, the pictures are adorable. They are just Grinchy enough for me. They have the same style as the original Grinch, but are still new and different.

This is a Step 1 book for preschool to kindergarten readers. It uses rhyme, big text, simple words, and picture clues to help young readers.

Excellent story with great pictures. I really loved this one. It definitely made my shrunken heart grow at least one size today.

TODAY IS YOUR DAY!
Oh the Places You'll Go![OH THE PLACES YOULL GO D][Hardcover] - DrSeuss

This is my favorite book of all times. I loved to read Dr. Seuss as a child but when I got older this book encouraged me and I will make sure it is one of the books I read to my students every year. A lot of inspirational messages are hidden in the book. If you are just reading it and making sure you rhyme you will miss all the goals and hidden messages. This will be a whole class read for my classroom.

Green Eggs and Ham
Green Eggs and Ham - Dr. Seuss

In Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss, Sam-I-Am tries to convince another Seuss character to eat green eggs and ham. This is a classic Dr. Seuss book that most children love. During Foundations Block, my CT read this book during Dr. Seuss week, and even cooked green eggs in-front of the students. 

 

Guided Reading: Level J

 

Classroom Activities: 

Students can work individually, with a partner, in a small group, or even as a class to sequence Sam's green eggs and ham adventure.

 

Ask students why they think Sam was so stubborn about not eating green eggs and ham. After some discussion, ask them to think of a food that they used to not like. Students will plan and then write their own "eating adventure" story. Encourage them to think of fun and creative places and situations to include in their story. You can even pull in some social studies curriculum by focusing on a particular city, state, region, or country.
