Always Give a Helping Hand.
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

This book opens your heart up and shows the importance of giving relentlessly and with love. The illustrations are simple, yet so powerful. The storyline really touches children of all ages, as it progresses into the future, into scenarios in which we all can relate to. A wonderful activity students could do would be to create their own giving tree and write compliments to other students and then present them.

Let Your Imagination Run Free!
Amazing Grace - Mary Hoffman,Caroline Binch

This book can really entice children to love, and get into reading. It encourages students to become part of the books and let their imagination grow freely, no matter the role. I love the illustrations and the message it sends that children can be anyone they want to be if they put their minds to it. One activity would be to complete a character traits chart during a read aloud, or even to work on free writing with a prompt such as, "I Will Be... ."

Learning Cents!
The Penny Pot (MathStart 3) - Stuart J. Murphy,Lynne Cravath

Another great counting book for children to learn money skills. This book also has activities in the back to help work on counting change. The setting is great for younger students and is relatable to something that they might actually experience in life. One fun math activity would be this example. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/165155511305014404/

Family Reunion!
Spaghetti and Meatballs for All! (Marilyn Burns Brainy Day Books) - Marilyn Burns,Debbie Tilley,Gordon Silveria

This book includes a large vocabulary index, and wonderful, bright, illustrations. It brings a real life scenario into teaching mathematics to upper elementary age students. The end of the book also explains the mathematics that go into the book and you can really break it down for the classroom. This book would be great for charting out step-by-step how much food needs to be made, and different ways the seating could be set up. One example of this can be found at the following link. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/46584177368188172/

Exploring A New Home.
Coraline - Neil Gaiman

Coraline offers a very imaginative feature for children in upper elementary grades. It has very detailed, and descriptive mannerisms that really engage the reader. Although, it can also be scary, so i would not recommend this for younger grades. This book can relate to children because it is given from a child's perspective in moving to a new house, and making new friends, which many children may experience. Vocabulary scavenger hunts would be a fun activity for this books, as would sequencing segments from the book and putting them in the correct order. Character traits would be another activity to work on with this book.
