Hairy, Scary, Ordinary: What Is an Adjective? - Brian P. Cleary,Jenya Prosmitsky

This book is a creative, colorful, and exciting way to to introduce adjectives to students by whimsical illustrations and funny sentences. I would use this in my classroom to introduce the idea of adjectives in sentences, and then guide the students to make sentences using adjectives and to circle them. I would use this for many elementary ages, but is ideal for 2nd grade. This book is Lexile Level NP. Great for usage in the classroom.

Don't Judge a Book by its Cover
The Little Bit Scary People by Emily Jenkins (2008-09-23) - Emily Jenkins

This book goes through the events of the protagonist finding "little bit scary people" but then stating "but I bet..." and then saying something positive about them. It teaches not to judge a book by its cover. I would honestly read this book to any grade- even high schoolers. There are so many different activities you could do with this book, most of them teaching students soft skills and manners. But I believe you can take this book to a whole other level. You can incorporate this into a science lesson by having students predict what is going to happen and then recording what actually happens. Another idea would be to read this book as an introduction to a new lesson or study in E/LA. I have seen on pinterest where teachers will wrap a book in paper so that students can't see the title. That is then the book they have to read for that particular study. It would also be a great way to split students up into book club books. Or, if you want to teach critical thinking, students can be given those mathematical optical illusions where something appears one way but is actually another. This would help segue into a geometry lesson. I would probably use this book as a fun introduction to another lesson, but you could do a writing prompt if you wanted to focus solely on this book.
