Blackout | John Rocco

I used to love when the power would go out as a child. I thought it was so much fun all the games i would get to play with my family because of it. This was a nice book that sparks good memories

Blackout by John Rocco was written in 2011. This book brings feelings of nostalgia as the reader looks back on the times when the power had gone out at their house and you‘d have to find ways to pass the time. The illustrations are also beautifully done and remind me of Van Gohs Starry Night.

One cool friends written by Toni Buzzeo in 2012 is a Caldecott award winner and a New York Times best seller. It‘s a fun story about a boy who is a little different than the other children but find a best friend where you‘d least expect it. The illustrations are an interesting and exciting addition to this silly story.

The Adventures of Beekle was written by Dan Santat in 2014 and won the Caldecott medal. It‘s not surprise to me that this is an award winning book because the illustrations are absolutely captivating. The color and wonder and whimsy leaps off the pages and reminds you of a time when imaginary friends were a part of your life too. A very cute kids book to read in any classroom.

The Paperboy by Dav Pilkey was written in 1997 and won the Caldecott award. This book leaves the reader feeling at peace and relaxed as the cool and dark tones of the pictures remind you of the early morning before the sun has begun to touch the earth. It tells a nice story of the boy who delivers the paper and how his morning is different than the norm.

Green Eyes written by Birnbaum in 1953 is a Caldecott award winning book and features a variety of bold and fun illustrations to go along with a simplistic text that allows you to focus on the pictures. Nice for very young children to have read to them as the bright colors of the world being depicted on the page will captivate them.

Don‘t let the Pigeon drive the bus was written by Mo Willems in 2003. This Caldecott award winning book is hilarious and so fun to read with children. It even made me laugh. The illustrations of the frustrated pigeon are silly and fun and the story line being interactive is really what makes it.

Yo! Yes by Christopher Raschka was published in 1993. The reader finds themselves discovering a big and important message of friendship and empathy in such a simplistic way. While the story is short in words, it makes up for in a big way in the important lesson it teaches to kids. I also loved the illustrations and how you could feel the emotions of the children.

This Is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen was published in 2012. A fun and silly tale about a little fish who took a bigger fishes hat, but what really wins you over is the illustrations. They tell a different story than the words on the page and show how things can be different depending on your point of view. An award winning story that find a nice place for itself in any classroom.

blurb

I really enjoyed how the story was told in the African tradition and how the beginning of the book explains that to you. Like how they repeat things and the context.

A story, a Story was written by Gail E. Haley and published in 1971. This is a wonderful fable like tale of how we got all of our stories we have today. The story makes you want to keep reading to see in Ananse can finish the tasks and how he does it. With the bright colors of the illustrations and the captivating story, I think it‘s definitely a great book to read in your classroom.

Stone Soup | Marcia Brown

Stone soup was cute with the idea of making soup from stones but I didn‘t really understand the moral takeaway. Like is it supposed to be ‘if people lie and won‘t feed you, trick them into it anyways ‘?

Stone Soup written by Marcia Brown was published in 1947. It has remained in classrooms for its tale of soldiers who trick the towns people into feeding them by pretending they‘re making soup out of stones, is funny and cute. The illustrations are well done and really help bring the story alive. A good story to read to slightly older children, like third grade.

Freedom in Congo Square | Carole Boston Weatherford

I think using story telling as a way to remember history is so important. It doesn‘t feel like memorizing facts about the past, it‘s much more personal than that. And it makes you remember it better.

Freedom in Congo Square by Carole Boston Weatherford and R. Gregory Christie was published in 2016. I feel this is an important tale the speaks to humans ability to stay resilient through even the worst conditions. The story talks about how they constantly worked and were beaten but what kept them going was their one afternoon off on Sundays. Through music and good people around them who shared similar plights, they found the will to live.
