This week we are talking about libraries and taking care of books! Here are some of the books we are reading!
- Dinosaur vs. the Library by Bob Shea. For my youngest classes, books by Bob Shea is always a hit! This is a great way to get into library rules too.
- Library Lion by Michelle Kundson. This is actually the book that I read during my job interview at my current school! It is long book but I like to read it to 1st graders. Again, a great way to get into library rules and the kids are really pulling for the Lion by the end. I think I’ll always read this one, it has sentimental value!
- Bats at the Library by Brian Lies. Like Library Lion and 1st grade, this is a book that I always read to 2nd graders. It is a fun story and a rhyming book which are always fun to read. Brian Lies has a whole bunch of these books (Bats in the Band, Bats at the Beach, etc)
- Thomas Jefferson Builds a Library by Barb Rosenstock. I read this one to my 4th grade classes. I thought it would be a good fit, they will start studying Jefferson and the American Revolution this year, and I get to talk about the Library of Congress. And, you know, make a slide show and stuff. No big deal.
