This extraordinary poet is one of a kind. Great poetry book 📖 New York Times bestselling author Amanda Gorman. Amanda Gorman is a seeker, a seer, a speaker of the most difficult and astonishing truths. Reading these poems will make you feel. A book of poetry so alive you'll want to hold it, protect it, and read it all at once, and then immediately read it again. Can you relate....

Contemporary MF-RA picture book, Caldecott Award and Charlotte Zolotow Award Winner. A beautifully designed children's book 📖, raw zigzags of color convey a girl's rage in this compassionate volume which proposes what to do when we get Really, Really Angry!! Everyone gets angry 😡, and that's it's okay to get angry, but it's how we deal with that anger & that is the lesson we learn in this storybook. Great read aloud lesson for teaching emotions.

This award winning book from the Elephant and Piggie book series, MF-RA, with rhyming words and repetitive phases, is great for literary and fluency exercises, coral response activities. Proceeded by "I really like Stop!" and "Listen To My Trumpet!" This series of expressive books like, "Let's Go For A Drive!" The idea of a car trip is off-the-hook exciting. Elephant shouts, "GET THAT MAP!" And Piggie rushes off. Then the celebration ?"MAP!"

Wonderfully illustrated animal book, details the actual size of different animals, unusually small & in contrast very large animals. It also contains specific details on animals that are featured & portrayed in the book. Excellent resource for introducing science & math. Sometimes facts & figures don't tell the whole story, you need to see things for yourself- at actual size.
