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.

Dumb Bunny
Junie B., First Grader: Dumb Bunny - Barbara Park,Denise Brunkus

Junie B. Jones is an average first grader. However, one of her classmates, Lucille is having Easter egg hunter at her house and everyone in class is invited.  The Easter egg hunt is a Lucille's mansion and the winner that finds the golden egg wins a play date to swim in Lucille's heated indoor swimming pool! Only, there's a small problem. Well a big pink fluffy problem. Lucille insists on Junie being the Easter rabbit complete with floppy ears and a cotton tail. Junie hates costumes and keeps tripping over her own too big rabbit feet. She just feels like a big old dumb bunny and has no hopes of winning the prize. Will Junie give up or does she have something up her basket? 

 

This book has a super fun activity to go with it. I would have my class hunt for eggs, however, they are in for more than just candy with this fun activity. They would be on a scavenger egg hunt and only the reading clues inside the eggs will help them get to the grand prize at the end.

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.
