Where the Wild Things Are
Where The Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak

The story of a little boy who is sent to bed without supper and his imagination takes over! He travels to a far off land (where the wild things are) and he becomes their king. Over time though he misses his family and comes back...to a hot bowl of soup :)

 

I would use this for a second grade classroom to illustrate how the author and illustrator use pictures and words to get their points across and to get them to create their own stories.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
How the Grinch stole Christmas! And other stories - Dr. Seuss

This tells the story of how the Grinch stole Christmas, and in the process learns the true meaning of Christmas. A very heartwarming story. 

 

For third graders i would use this book during a Christmas unit i would teach. Not only Christmas but i would include it in a number of books that i would teach about the many different traditions around the world.

The Chronicles of Narnia
The Chronicles of Narnia - C.S. Lewis,Pauline Baynes

The Chronicles of Narnia follows the adventures of the Pevensie family and how they find adventure and honor in another world. 

 

I would truly use these books on ALL grade levels, reading to the younger and making book reviews for the older. There is literally so many units you could do with these!

Irish Fairy Tales
Irish Fairy Tales - Sinead de Valera,Chris Bradbury

These are a series of shortish Irish folk stories. All of them have a central theme and a lesson integrated into the story. 

 

For older students definitely. I would use these for 5th or 6th grade to give an alternate view on storytelling. Most likely during a unit on theme and good morals

Brown bear brown bear what do you see?
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? - Bill Martin Jr.,Eric Carle

This is a big follow along book where the student follows along with what the "person" is seeing. Has lots of repetition and visuals. 

 

I would use this in a 1st or at max a second grade classroom for more emergent readers but also i would use it as a review for more experienced readers.
