Chrysanthemum
Chrysanthemum - Kevin Henkes

This is a great book to help build students' self esteem. The book could be read as a read aloud to help give students that extra boost of confidence. After the read aloud, the students could create a flower with something great about themselves on each petal. This book could also be used as an introduction to a lesson on character analysis.

A Bad Case of Stripes
A Bad Case of Stripes - David Shannon

The book is a fun, interactive book for elementary school. The book focuses on a girl and how she changes skin tones based on her surroundings. This is a great book to be used to introduce cause and effect. The students could clearly see how as the character changes scenes, her skin changes. It could also be used to help students make predictions.

Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon
Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon - Patty Lovell,David Catrow

This book is my absolute favorite children's book. It is the story of a young girl, Molly Lou Melon, who moves to a new school and does not quite look or act like her peers. It teaches students about diversity and how it is okay to not be like everyone else. It encourages students to embrace who they are and to be confident in who they are. This book could be a great read aloud for the first day of school. It could also introduce a lesson on character analysis.

The Rainbow Fish
The Rainbow Fish - Marcus Pfister,J. Alison James

This book is a great story for lower elementary students. It teaches students about learning to make new friendships. I think this would be great to use as a read aloud on the first day of school and have the students write an interesting fact about themselves or something they like on a scale shaped piece of colorful paper. The teacher could put these colorful scales together to make a rainbow fish and promote unity in the classroom. On a more educational level, the students could analyze the character of the rainbow fish.

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs
The True Story of the Three Little Pigs! - John A. Scieszka

This is a great book for students to read for many reasons. It tells the story of the three little pigs from the viewpoint of the wolf. This book would be great for a lesson on points of view as well as compare and contrast. I have done one lesson with this book that focused on inferences. This is a great book that can offer a variety of lessons.
