The Complete Adventure of Curious George
The Complete Adventures of Curious George - Margret Rey,H.A. Rey

These are a series of books involving "George" who is a monkey living with a man in a yellow hat. George is always curious and that curiosity always causes him to get into trouble but not so much that he can't learn a lesson from it!


Any grade up to 2nd i should say is good for this book series. I would most likely use it to plan a series of lessons involving following the rules and doing what you are supposed to. Most likely at the very beginning of the year.

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.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom - Bill Martin Jr.,John Archambault,Lois Ehlert

This is a hilarious story that involves all the lower case letters of the alphabet climbing a coconut tree and then being rescued when they fall by the upper case letters.


Definitely for Kindergarten or 1st. I would try to integrate this somehow with an art project or even a musical thing where we could colab. it would be fun!

Charlotte's Web
Charlotte's Web - E.B. White,Garth Williams,Rosemary Wells

This is a story about friendship, and one's will to live. It follows the life and times of Wilbur who is a pig and expected to die after a certain amount of time. He thinks his life has more value then that so after befriending a spider named Charlotte they set about saving his life. 


A very good story to share with younger grades. 1st would be my recommendation. I would do a unit on farm animals and read them parts of this book.

The Giver
The Giver - Lois Lowry,Ron Rifkin

This is to me a very sad story about a world that wanted to forget everything. Meaning all of their problems. They tried to make their world perfect and all their ducks in a row.. but it doesn't work. One person must remember. The Giver is a story about loss and understanding. 


I would use this on my 6th grade class to demonstrate thinking for yourself and not believing everything you hear. also i would use it to encourage them to explore "their " world more.
