I have read so many great books over the past 16 weeks so it is hard to choose just ten! After much contemplation I think I can narrow down my choices to ten. My choices consist of a few picture books that I loved and a couple young adult/juvenille fiction books that I really enjoyed reading. Here is my list:
This book was so great because I think everyone can relate to going to Grandma’s house! The Hello, Goodbye Window had a sentimental meaning behind it and I think every kid would enjoy reading this book.
I picked this book because of the title and figured it would have a lesson to go along with the story. This is probably one of my favorite books so far! It is a great book about true friendship and what we would do for the ones we love! I loved the illustrations also!
I picked this book because of the title and because of the author. I have read some of Shel Silverstein’s books but not this one. I like this book because at the end, it teaches us that life isn’t about materialistic things but it’s about friendship and how important it is to have someone by our side throughout life when things get tough. I loved the illustrations.
I loved reading this book! It shows what lengths people will go for the people they love and care about. I also loved how this book ended with a happy ending!:)
I loved this book! It is not so much an elementary book but more for middle schoolers or older. I loved the storyline of the book and I also like how it was written from two different points of view throughout the book.
This book is awesome! It is about a girl who finds a stray dog and decides to give it a home. They become great friends and do everything together. Along the way, the girl makes friends with other people in town and learns a lot about the new town she lives in. I think this would be a great book for older elementary kids. I think it would be fun to do a friendship unit on this with the whole class and then watch the movie at the end!
This is probably my favorite young adult book that I have read thus far. It is about a girl named Maggie who is too smart for her own good. During the book, there are a few obstacles that her family has to go through and it feels as if you are going through them with her when you are reading the book. I loved this book!
I absolutely loved this book! Everytime the girl sees this certain dog, she sees her mom too even though she is not alive anymore. It goes to show that even if our loved ones aren’t on earth with us anymore, they are still in our hearts!
This is another one of Mo Willems’ books and it was great! It seems to me he really enjoys writing about sharing. This book has a great lesson that goes along with the story and would be a cute book to read to younger children to teach them about sharing!
I loved the innocence of this book! It had great illustrations and I think it would be an easy read for any young reader. It didn’t have a lesson to it, I just thought it was a cute and fun book!
