Here are a few of my favorite newly discovered picture books. I admit it... I am a book hoarder and am always searching for more books to add to my growing collection. I love discovering new books to read to my students!
The Book With No Pictures is an absolute hit with my students. Some of my kiddos asked for it on their Christmas list. No joke! They beg me to read it again and again. The book is written by B. J. Novak, a humorist and actor. The whole book is a cosmic joke on the adult reading it, and the kids love it!
Kathryn Otoshi has a great series of books titled Zero, One, and Two. These are fabulous for the beginning of school. The books deal with social lessons such as bullying, being yourself, and getting along with others. They are simply brilliant!
Arrggghh! You don't need a pirate project to read this book! No Pirates Allowed! Said Library Lou is by Rhonda Gowler Greene. I fell in love with this book because Library Lou is a teacher at heart- she sneakily (I think that is a word?) teaches a rough and tumble pirate to read without him knowing. He soon discovers that READING is the treasure! (Read in a pirate voice.) Arrggghh, it does this here teacher's heart good!
