A Mink, a Fink, a Skating Rink!
A Mink, a Fink, a Skating Rink: What Is a Noun? - Brian P. Cleary,Jenya Prosmitsky

I LOVE this book! It is such a fun way to learn about nouns! Teachers can introduce this book to their students in K-3rd grade! Students love fun books, and this one offers a lot of interactive opportunities. For example, the teacher can have the students stand up, write down, or hold up some kind of representation (ex. a picture on a popsicle stick) every time they hear a noun! (P.S. this is a great way to do an informal assessment!)

The Giving Tree
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

The Giving Tree is one of my all time FAVORITES! If a teacher did a read-aloud with this book, I think it would be appropriate for kindergarten through second grade (some second graders could begin reading this independently). This book has the potential to teach students about sharing and relationships! One lesson to be done with this book would be to make a tree for the classroom and give the students an outline of an apple and have the students write down one way to be a good friend (they could also color the apples). The teacher can collect the apples, laminate them, and then have the tree up all year long for the class to have their own little reminders of how we need to treat others!
