The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Eric Carle

This book is about a caterpillar who eats many different food items.This book is highly predictable and fun for young children to read. This book would be excellent to help young children learn about different food items as well as the words used to represent food items. This text could also be used to help children understand the concepts of metamorphosis. This book has a lexile level of AD460L so this text would be appropriate for Pre-K and under.

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

This book is about a girl who does everything her friends tell her to do. She does the things that the other children do, even if she does not like it. Well one day she wakes up to find that she is covered in stripes. The book goes on to tell the reader about the different physical abnormalities that occur. The main idea behind the story is that it is great for a person to just be themselves and not what peers think they should be. This is a great book to teach the children on individuality and self-esteem. The lexile level is AD540L so students should be around the 1st or 2nd grade for independent reading.

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

This book is about a boy and his relationship with a talking tree. The tree gives everything she can to the boy in order to make him happy. The extent that the tree goes through to achieve this goal is what intentionally shocked me. The plot showed the book moral in a very unique way that really sticks to the reader. It teaches about unconditional love a parent may have for their child, which is a wonderful thing to teach and learn about. It would be great to use in a lesson about something being unconditional. This book would also be great in demonstrating time progression due to the fact that the boy ages throughout the story. For instance, at the end of the story the boy is no longer a child but an old man. Despite the fact that the character was now old, the character is still referred to as "boy" or "the boy." This really reinforces the fact that the character is still the same person despite appearances. Thus, time progression. The lexile level is 530L so students should be around the 2nd grade for independent reading.

Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes
Chrysanthemum - Kevin Henkes

This book is about a little girl who gets made fun of at school because she was named after a flower. The little girl does everything she can think of to prevent the bullying but it does not work. Change only happens when a loved adult tells the students about her own name being from a flower. So the girl learns that it was alright to be different. That differences are what make a person unique and great. It teaches a great lesson to students. It is great to use in the classroom if students are not getting along or possibly to help prevent bullying over similar reasons. The lexile level is 410L so students would need to be around the 1st or 2nd grade for independent reading.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom - Bill Martin Jr.,John Archambault,Lois Ehlert

This story is about lowercase letters climbing up a coconut tree. But when all of the letters get in the tree, they all fall out because there were too many of them in the tree. Then the lowercase letters' patents, capital letters, came and took care of all the little letters. I loved this book when I was little. It is great for teaching children their alphabet due to all of the catchy rhymes. Another thing the book is great for is connecting lowercase letters with the capital letters. The book does a great in showing that although the letters look different, they are still the same letter. Chicka chicka boom boom! The lexile level is 530L but it would be great for the teacher to read to the class in PreK or Kindergarten.
