How blessed is it to have two grandmothers living under the same roof? This little boy experienced having both by his side. Within the story he knew each of them well and even experienced death and showed how he coped and understood the life process. It‘s a good book for children who do not understand death. Good sentimental book. #UCFWaltersLit https://www.teachingchildrenphilosophy.org/BookModule/NanaUpstairsAndNanaDownsta...

Brookegamble @Linsayesp I really enjoyed when Professor Walters shared this book with us! This book can be relatable to almost all students and is a great read aloud for younger students! #UCFWaltersLit 2y
Seans_h @Linsayesp I think this is a great choice to share in the class for introducing mature reading topics for growing readers. I enjoyed having this story shared in class because it can make you feel something and put us in the same place as the boy in the story. The story can also be relatable for some so they will really appreciate it. #UCFWaltersLit 2y

Framed! | James Ponti
post image

Framed is about a child who moved to DC and he helped the FBI solve a case along with his friend Margaret. He became and asset to the FBI. The TOAST system that they incorporated is perfect especially for smaller children in taking into account the smaller things. #UCFWaltersLit

lizzie0922 @Linsayesp I never read this book before, but it sounds so interesting! I love the idea of this young boy who is already helping the FBI with cases. #UCFWaltersLit 2y

Corduroy | Don Freeman
post image

Even from childhood this is and still is my favorite book. The book teaches that you don‘t have to have everything in life and if you don‘t that‘s okay. Also, it teaches them that to fit in or be loved you don‘t have to be perfect. People will love you for you. #UCFWaltersLit https://www.teachervision.com/pocket-corduroy-don-freeman

Seans_h @Linsayesp I loved reading this book as a child and listening in class during storytelling! I love your perspective on the book that you don‘t need everything to be happy or accepted, and someone will always appreciate the little things about you. Corduroy is a need in the classroom and always a great choice for a read aloud! #UCFWaltersLit 2y

This book really does fit into modern fantasy. I mean kids now really think that some day it may actually rain meatballs. It‘s hilarious. The book is a good read and the children love the what if behind it. #UCFWaltersLit #ModernFantasy https://www.teachervision.com/summarizing-cloudy-chance-meatballs

She Persisted | Chelsea Clinton
post image

She persisted is a Nonfiction book about it 13 women who impacted our lives. These women are inspirational and never took no for an answer. These women always spoke out for what was right they were persistent. #UCFWaltersLit #Nonfiction http://www.keiladawson.com/persisted-chelsea-clinton/

Seans_h @Linsayesp I have yet to read ‘She Persisted‘ but have heard nothing but good things about the book! I think the concept of the story is wonderful, to look at not just one, but thirteen women who kept persisting toward their goals until they were achieved. I would love to have this book in my classroom! #UCFWaltersLit 2y

Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad | Dave Hoover, Michael Martin, Bill Anderson
post image

This book is a perfect Biography book for children. Harriet Tubman was an escaped slave who became a leader in The abolishment movement. She also was a spy for the US army. #UCFWaltersLit #Biography https://educators.brainpop.com/bp-jr-topic/harriet-tubman/

Erica.rivera @Linsayesp Harriet Tubman is a interesting person to read and talk about. The book choice looks very engaging to the younger students for a read aloud. Are there activities that go with the book? Great choice!. (edited) 2y

Wonder | R. J. Palacio
post image

Wonder hands down is the best Realistic Fiction book out there to open the eyes of educators and children about the truth that children with “disabilities” face. It showed perspectives for everyone who was involved with Auggie. Amazing book ! #UCFWaltersLit https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/wonder-by-rj-palacio-whole-class-reading-u...

For starters this is not a book I would normally pick up to read. The image did capture my eye and I figured let me read something out of comfort zone. Let me tell you how I loved the book! After I started reading I couldn‘t stop and the end of the book made me cry a little bit. Such a good book to read even for those who do not like fantasy. #UCFwaltersLit https://www.floridamediaed.org/uploads/6/1/4/2/61420659/ms-girlwhodrankthemoon.p...
