On of my personal favorite actors wrote this RF
book. It's a fun and engaging book that makes you the reader say and react different ways to the person you are reading it to. Very hilarious book! Here is a video of Author/Actor BJ Novak reading to a elementary school class

This TL book is such a cute heartwarming book about a mouse who feels their is more to life than doing chores for the upcoming winter with his mouse friends and to be thought as lazy throughout the book. But to his mouse friends surprise he tells them of the colors of the warm sun to help warm them and gifts them many words so they would never run out of things to say during the harsh winter. It is a cute twist at the end. #UCFLAE3414su17

DrSpalding Look back at the book and your flip book to check the appropriate genre. Also, be sure to use your rubric and include a resource that provides information as to how this book could be used in the classroom.❤️📚 5y
