Winnie-the-Pooh - Ernest H. Shepard,A.A. Milne

I had to add this book to my list because it is my all time favorite book EVER! Winnie-The-Pooh is a sweet little bear who LOVES honey, it's almost all he thinks about! Pooh also loves to go on adventures with his best friend Christopher Robin, as well as Tigger, Piglet, Kanga, Roo, and Rabbit. Winnie-The-Pooh was actually a story written by A.A Milne for his son, Christopher Robin.He wrote the stories in a way that incorporated his son in them with all of his sons favorite stuffed animals. It quickly reached the public and has been famous ever since. 


How I would use this book in my class:

I will read this book to my students one day in the hopes of getting them excited to read. I will express how this book is my favorite and always puts me in the mood to read! I will tell them that one day they too will find a book that makes them feel that way. I would also use this book in a lesson on famous authors (example being A.A Milne) and have my students do a research project on any of their favorite authors (or I can give them a author if they don't know of any).

Harold and the Purple Crayon
Harold and the Purple Crayon - Crockett Johnson

This is a book about a little four year old boy named Harold and his magical purple crayon. Harold goes throughout the pages drawing fantastic worlds with his magical crayon that come to life. Quickly Harold finds himself in trouble with his purple crayon and has to think quick!


How I would use this book in my classrom:


I would read this book to my students and then do a hands on activity with them. The activity I would like to do is give my students each a sheet of paper and a purple crayon and let them create their own version of a "perfect world". I would as the students to then write what they drew on a piece on another piece of paper and glue it to the back of their drawing. This would be for students grade 1st-4th.

Click Clack Moo Cows That Type
Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type - Doreen Cronin,Betsy Lewin

This is a silly fiction book that is popular in today's schools. When farmer Brown isn't meeting his cows needs, they learn to type so they can communicate with him! Before he knows it, the cows are typing farmer Brown letters! Farmer Brown can't believe it, can you? Farmer Brown doesn't like his cows "bossing" him around and refuses to help them. So what do the cows do? They go on strike! 


How would I use this book in my classroom?

I would ask my students to pretend that they are one of farmer Browns cows. I would ask them to write farmer Brown a letter requesting something that they think they will need and why they need it. This would be a fun interactive activity!

Junie B. Jones Series
Junie B. Jones and the Mushy Gushy Valentime - Barbara Park,Denise Brunkus

This is just one book in a huge series of Junie B. Jones books. Its a chapter book and would be better read during independent reading time. Junie B Jones touches on important topics such as manners, "girl power", and growing up (puberty) in a humorous way. The series is full of holiday inspired books and would be great to add to any teacher library.


How I would use this book in my classroom:

I would like to keep a few of these books in my classroom for my students to read during free reading time. This one in particular I would show to my kids during the month of February in hopes they would get hooked on the series. Any type of reading is good reading!

Green Eggs and Ham
Dr. Suess's Green Eggs and Ham: For Soprano, Boy Soprano, and Orchestra - Robert Kapilow

This is quite possibly the most well known of the Dr. Seuss books. It teaches an important lesson to kids on why you should never "knock it until you try it" or be judgmental of things you do not understand. With its rhymes and silly pictures, this book is sure to trap its readers in. 


How I would use this book in my classroom:


I would love to use read this book during Dr. Seuss week/day. What better way to celebrate the great things Dr. Seuss has done than with his own most popular book?
