Boycott Blues
Boycott Blues: How Rosa Parks Inspired a Nation - Andrea Davis Pinkney,Brian Pinkney

AR: 2.9

Grade Level: 3rd-6th

Summary: Boycott Blues is a book all about how people, during the civil rights movement, dealt with segregation. The story is told from a "dog-tired hound", which makes the book even more interesting! 

Idea: I absolutely fell in love with this book the first time I read it! The fact that it's told from a dog, who's singing the "boycott blues" is amazing! I also love the fact that the author personifies segregation, as a menacing bird. This is an amazing book to intertwine social studies with, and to teach figurative language!

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

AR: 3.3

Grade Level: PreK-3rd

Summary: Rainbow Fish, by Marcus Pfister, is all about the value of friends. It teaches children that you cannot always stand alone. Sometimes you need help. Sometimes you have to make sacrafices! Together is always better!

Idea: I absolutely love this book. I would most definitely use this book for character education. I would stress the importance of not being selfish and being open to making new friends. An activity that I would use for this would be to label "the rainbow" fish. I would do this activity with my younger students, such as Kindergarten.

Have you ever had anyone tell you that you couldn't be something because of your race, gender, etc? Yeah? Well Grace can relate. Amazing Grace is about how Grace chooses to take on the role of achieving her goals, despite what her peers have to say about it. No matter what, YOU CAN be anything and everything you want like to be!

I absolutely love this book! It teaches so much about character and diverisity! A fun activity that I would allow students to participate in is acting out the book. This way, they can literally put their foot in someone else's shoes!

Summary: The Very Hungry Caterpillar is all about how a very hungry caterpillar transformed into a not so hungry butterfly! This book is excellent for teaching numbers and the cycle of the butterfly. 

Idea: I will most definitely be using this book to teach a science lesson on the life cycle of a butterfly. This would be beneficial for my younger students because it is fun and educational! This is also an opportunity to incorporate math into my lesson.
