A Mink, A Fink, A Skating Rink Review
A Mink, a Fink, a Skating Rink: What Is a Noun? - Brian P. Cleary,Jenya Prosmitsky

This book is a great resource for teaching nouns. It is filled with numerous examples of nouns, and what it means to be a noun. I would use this book in first grade primarily since that is when nouns are introduced. It could also be used in second grade for a review session. Perhaps I would also read it in kindergarten if they were on track for it.

Bud, Not Buddy Review
Bud, Not Buddy - Christopher Paul Curtis

Bud, Not Buddy is a story about an orphaned boy who runs away to find who he believes is his father. The plot follows his journey through northern Michigan during the 1930's. Bud faces many challenges, and overcomes all of them. I would use this book for upper grades, probably around fourth and fifth grade. It could be tied in with a history lesson, the students could learn about how life was during the 1930's while reading the novel. It could also be a writing lesson in which the students write to Bud, or write their own extension of the story itself.

Pumpkin Pumpkin Review
Pumpkin Pumpkin - Jeanne Titherington

Pumpkin Pumpkin is about a young boy, named Jamie, who plants some pumpkin seeds and watches them grow. It is a wonderful little book that describes the life cycle of a pumpkin. I would use this for kindergarten or first grade. It could go with a science lesson about pumpkins, but it could also be used in an English lesson. There is a worksheet called Jamie and his Pumpkin for kindergartners, which has them color in only the scenes that occurred in the story. For first grade, the students could write about a time they made a jack-o-lantern, or watched something grow. It is perfect for the fall.

Shaggy and Scooby!
The Ski Lesson (Scooby Doo! Phonics Reading Program, #3) - Frances Ann Ladd,Duendes del Sur

Shaggy and Scooby try to learn to ski, which, ofcourse, does not go very well. So instead, they go inside, drink hot chocolate, and eat Scooby Snacks. This is an awesome resource for s-blends for beginners. I would use this book in first grade, and possibly second for struggling readers. I would use this as an example for s-blends.

Fall Leaves Change Colors
Fall Leaves Change Colors - K. Zoehfeld Fall Leaves Change Colors - K. Zoehfeld

This is a fantastic science resource for younger students. It goes into great detail about how trees change during the seasons, what happens inside of leaves, and has a glossary. It also provides closer pictures for students to see exactly what the book is describing. I would use this for second to third graders, maybe first if there was an advanced reader. This book is basically a lesson in itself. It could be part of a science investigation center. Students could read this in a group and collect different leaves to present.
