Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale - Mo Willems

This book is hilarious! It’s a simple story about a dad who takes his baby daughter with to the laundromat. There, the daughter accidentally leaves her knuffle bunny in the washing machine. She realizes it on the walk home and tries to tell her dad, but she can’t talk yet, so the dad just hears babbling. After returning home, the parents realize that knuffle bunny is missing, so they go back to the laundromat to find it. The baby babbling is sure to make the reader laugh!

 

In the classroom, this book works great for learning problem and solution.

Enemy Pie
Enemy Pie - Derek Munson,Tara Calahan King

I really enjoyed this book. It is a very fun and interactive read aloud. This book teaches children to learn to be friends with people they may not exactly like at first. A good way to use this book in a lesson would be to create an anchor chart on problem and solution. The students could also write ingredients to their own friendship pie and they would put details on how to be a good friend.

Charlotte's Web
Charlotte's Web - E.B. White,Garth Williams,Rosemary Wells

Charlotte's Web is one of my favorite chapter books as a child. I really enjoyed watching the main character overcome so many obstacles. This would be a great lesson for a class to study. The students could analyze the individual characters such as Wilbur, Charlotte, and Fern. The students could then compare and contrast the characters through their challenges. Also, they could compare and contrast one of these characters to a character from another book.

Green Shamrocks
Green Shamrocks - Eve Bunting,Joëlle Dreidemy

I really enjoy having read-alouds that go with the theme of a main holiday of the month. This book obviously would be read near St. Patrick's Day. It is a very simple story that could be used to teach about problem and solution. The students could also complete a craft during a St. Patrick's Day celebration.

"How Smudge Came" by Nan Gregory
How Smudge Came - Nan Gregory,Ron Lightburn

When Cindy finds a puppy in the rain she takes him home with her despite the fact she knows will not be aloud to keep him. She tries to hide him during the night and during the day takes the puppy to work with her. A problem arises when the people she lives with find the puppy and take it away. She works to get the puppy back and the story ends with the patients at the hospice center she works at find the puppy and decide to keep her there for her. Students can use this story to study plot diagrams and problem and solution. They could use a cause and effect graphic organizer or fill out a plot diagram.
