The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

This book is about a boy and his relationship with a talking tree. The tree gives everything she can to the boy in order to make him happy. The extent that the tree goes through to achieve this goal is what intentionally shocked me. The plot showed the book moral in a very unique way that really sticks to the reader. It teaches about unconditional love a parent may have for their child, which is a wonderful thing to teach and learn about. It would be great to use in a lesson about something being unconditional. This book would also be great in demonstrating time progression due to the fact that the boy ages throughout the story. For instance, at the end of the story the boy is no longer a child but an old man. Despite the fact that the character was now old, the character is still referred to as "boy" or "the boy." This really reinforces the fact that the character is still the same person despite appearances. Thus, time progression. The lexile level is 530L so students should be around the 2nd grade for independent reading.

Mindfulness and Unconditional Love
Mindful Being - Nataša Pantović Nuit

Our philosophers, our poets, our scientists, tell us that the formula of our Universe is Love, governed by Venus. She combines the highest spiritual with the lowest material qualitiesLove materialised on Earth.  She is born in water, from mud, and she bears the lotus.  Her mystical mantra is: ‘Love is the law, but Love controlled by Will’.

Never Too Little to Love
Never Too Little to Love - Jeanne Willis,Jan Fearnley

Never Too Little to Love, by Jeanne Willis, is about a mouse who loves a giraffe.  He tries to reach her by stacking one thing on top of another on top of another.  Finally, the stack crashes to the ground before he reaches her.  She hears the crash, sees him, and because she loves him, too, bends way down to give him a kiss. 


Never Too Little to Love is a sweet story about unconditional love and never giving up. It would be best read to or by younger elementary students. They will enjoy the repetition and will most likely read it along with you as the repetition builds. The illustrations are bright and younger students will appreciate the flaps that allow you to see the repeating words. It is just a really cute story.

Frozen is a book any elementary school child, especially girls, will enjoy.  Most will already be familiar with it from seeing the movie of the same name.  This is another great story to use as a writing prompt. When teaching point of view, students can write the story from a different characters point of view. They can also write about what happens after the book ends. This book would also be a hit as a readers' theater piece.

When Santa Lost His Ho! Ho! Ho!
When Santa Lost His Ho! Ho! Ho! - Laura Rader

In When Santa Lost His Ho! Ho! Ho!, by Laura Rader it's just a few days before Christmas when Santa realizes he can no longer say ho! ho! ho!  Everyone tries to help: Mrs. Claus, the doctor, and even the elves, but no one can bring it back.  When the news makes it's way around the world, the world responds.  Santa recieves gifts and letters from all over the world. When Santa sees all of the greetings he's received, he gets his ho ho ho back and Christmas is back on!


This is a fun book to read in grades K - 3 during the holidays.  It lends itself well to writing activities, such as writing a letter to Santa to make him feel better or writing a newspaper article about Santa's lost ho ho ho.  Students could decorate Santas to adorn the walls or the class Christmas tree. This book teaches a sweet lesson about caring about others and how showing we care can make things better for someone else. When Santa Lost His Ho! Ho! Ho!  is a great book to read to your class as part of a lesson or just for fun.
