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

Where the Wild Things Are is a literary classic and a must for young readers. The vocabulary in this book is awesome and young readers will enjoy discovering the meaning. Art can be easily incorporated with this book, students could make their own "wild thing" or using certain shapes to make wild things such as a circle or triangle. This will help students develop their understanding of shapes as well.

Bridge to Terabithia - Katherine Paterson

Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson is an excellent book about the friendship between a young boy and girl. They become close through an imaginary land that they created together. The story is best for students that are in 4th and 5th grade to read. The heartwarming novel is a unique way to explore the concept of loss and grief with students. The book is a beautiful piece for students to reflect on in their daily journals.

Bridge to Terabithia
Bridge to Terabithia - Katherine Paterson

Bridge to Terabithia is one of my favorite books. The story is beautifully told and every minute of it is enjoyable. This book is full of imagination and courage. Terabithia is a completely made up kingdom so that would be a great activity to do with students. Students would create their own Terabithia in any format they chose to. They could draw it, use technology or use descriptive writing.

Matilda Review
Matilda - Roald Dahl,Quentin Blake

Matilda, is a must read book for all children. I would use this book with higher grades, 3rd-5th. This book is about a little girl who must put up with her crazy family and evil principal, and uses her powers of telekinesis to protect herself and those she loves. I think students would really enjoy reading this book. I would use this book in my classroom to have students practice reading comprehension by having whole group/ or small group discussions of the story. (Book Reading Level: Lexile 840L)

Duck! Rabbit! Review
Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Tom Lichtenheld

This is a great book to use with younger grades when learning about perspective and point of view. I would use this book in my classroom by having students discuss what they see as we read the book together and than have them compare answers with other classmates in order to understand perspective.
