This book was my childhood. Period.
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

Honestly I feel unworthy to even give this book a review because I feel it is a blanket understanding that this book is the greatest book ever written. Ever. How one book can move even the most stubborn hearts and oldest souls, as well and melt the hearts of the young who it was written for I have no idea. If you haven’t read it, go now and take tissues.   A great story that reminds us love is the best gift of all. And although I would like to use this book in lessons as well, I thought about doing something a little different in my room and having our own class giving tree but instead of the tree giving away it’s leavea, we as a class throughout the year build our tree up with compliments to each other as well as me giving compliments out to individual students. The compliment and student’s name will go on the leaf and they get to hang their leaf on the tree where they would like. A great positive visual in the classroom to promote a giving heart.

He was so hungry... he really ate through the book.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Eric Carle

This book is a book that will forever be associated with an elementary classroom because every student thought it was so amazing that the book itself looked like a caterpillar has eaten through the pages. The pictures are so colorful and vibrant and even though there aren’t many words, thw story like is clear and the book is nothing less than spectacular. I will definitely use this book to teach the life cycle of certain insects and animals as well as hopefully get the chance to have some class caterpillars that we can watch go through the different phases to a butterfly.
