Some of these books seem great for my classroom library to read-aloud to my pre-k class! I really like the look of “how to read a story,” “crenshaw,” “marilyn’s monsters,” and “circus mirandus.” I chose “how to read a story” because the children are still learning the basics of holding a book, and knowing what parts of the book mean. They will all be fun, imaginative stories for the children to rest and simply listen to!
When you get a group of literacy educators together at a table over dinner, what does the conversation turn to? Books! The problem is how fast our “to be read” stack grows when we get together. So. Many. Books. How to help? We each decided to pick just one book (this is really hard!) released in 2015 that we consider a must read. Not necessarily the best book of 2015, just a book that we feel should not be missed. Is your credit card ready? Here we go!
Marilyn’s Monsters written by Michelle Knudsen, illustrated by Matt Phelan
