Groovy Buttons
Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons - Eric Litwin,James Dean

Pete the Cat books are just so much fun to get into and this one shows the importance of not worrying about small things. As Pete says, "stuff comes and stuff goes." I love the illustrations and the rhyming in this book. This book would be great for a sequencing activity where students put sentences in order based off of what happened in the book.

Baby Groot!
Night Night, Groot - Brendan Deenan,Cale Atkinson

This is such a fun story for those students who love their super heroes and action packed books. Baby Groot gets a recap of his fun days spent with his friend and it even includes rhyming. I would use this book with caution in the classroom, as it does involve super heroes and fight scenes with the bad guys. A fun activity for this book would be to have students write short poems.

Practice Makes Perfect.
Hooray for Reading Day! - Margery Cuyler,Arthur Howard

This book gives a wonderful representation about the fears that come along with reading out loud. Students can greatly benefit from this book and relate to it. It also shows the worries that students can encounter in their life. I love that it shows how these reading fears can be overcome and worked with as students get better with practice. This book would be great to show students that all readers are different and you could have your students practice in pairs reading sentences out loud to each other at centers.

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.

We Are All Capable!
The Three Ninja Pigs - Corey Rosen Schwartz,Dan Santat

This book puts such a fun, and creative new spin on The Three Little Pigs. It introduces students to challenges and how to overcome those challenges. I love that one of the main characters, and heroine, is the female pig. It is action packed, and full of illustrations that support them. An activity for students would be to have them fill out a compare/contrast handout.
