Hard to believe but this is my 100th post! Time sure does fly.
I brought home a big bag of books from the library on Saturday, books to read for research for my writing course “Pacing to Wow”. Some of them I was drawn to and others just did not move me. Here are some of my favourites:
Duck! Rabbit! by Amy Krouse, illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld
Loved this book! This is a skill for kids – to be able to see both images in a double image. Optical illusions was always a favourite topic when I taught science. Some children had such a difficult time seeing the old lady/young lady images.(Check here for the image.
Nugget and Fang by Tammi Sauer, illustrated by Michael Slack
Great story of friendship and believing in your friend and putting your friends first.
Dogku by Andrew Clements , illustrated by Tim Bowers
Great book to use for writing haiku. Cute story as well.
Jazz Baby by Lisa Wheeler and R. Gregory Christie
Loved the rhythm of the book and the word choice especially.
Be sure to check at Teach Mentor Texts for a wide range of book choices.
