The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses
The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses - Paul Goble

I loved this book when I was a child, and it's still great. It tells the story of a Native American girl who loved wild horses. When the herd living near her tribe flees in fright from a storm, she jumps on the back of one and is carried far away from her tribe. She is seen later, living as one among the wild horses. Tailored for students in 4th and 5th grades, this book makes a great addition to fiction lessons. I would read this book aloud to the class to supplement cultural fiction and native american mythology lessons.

You Are My Work of Art
You Are My Work of Art - Sue DiCicco

I know its more of a parent-child book, but this book is so sweet.  Kindergarten students will love this book about how they are the greatest work of art.  I would add this book to my kindergarten introduction to art.  When reading this book aloud to my class, I would give them copies of the accompanying works of art and let them guess which one will be referenced on each page.

Who Put The B in Ballyhoo?
Who Put the B in the Ballyhoo? - Carlyn Beccia

This beautiful book provides terms and facts about the circus in alphabetical order, camouflaged by vivid illustrations and whimsical rhymes.  Fourth graders will be whisked away with the traveling circus when reading this book.  This book would be a great addition to any nonfiction lesson. I would use this book to introduce students to research and learning how to seek information through text.

Teammates - Peter Golenbock,Paul Bacon

Teammates tells the story of when Jackie Robinson became the first black Major League baseball player, and how Pee Wee Reese took a stand and proudly called Jackie his teammate.  This book is best suited for 3rd-5th grades.  The book would lend itself perfectly to lessons on nonfiction, as well as teaching about equality and standing up for what is right.  I would read this book to the class the day following the fiction lesson using The Bat Boy and His Violin.  The two books take place during the same time frame, and both are surrounded by the historical events of the time.  This would make a great lesson in comparing and contrasting fiction and nonfiction.
