#MMBBR Books in the Classroom with Yvonne! @HolidayHouseBks

The Sun Dance
By: Casandra Mei-Fong Lee

The illustrations drew me in the first time I read this book. I found the warm, earthy, colors and tremendous amount of detail were fun to “read”
without the words. The book is based on a conversation between Earth and Sun. As Earth explains to Sun the important role it plays in making Earth the way it is; a friendship between the two develops. This book would be fun to read to students with their eyes closed and have them visualize and draw their own illustrations. 3.5 stars

A Night at the Zoo
By: Kathy Caple

I can’t wait to share this book with my beginning readers. It is often difficult to find stories for beginning readers that actually have a fun story line. Caple does an amazing job of incorporating easy to read dialogue, sound words and different types of punctuation (ellipses) for readers to practice in a “real” book. The students will love the fun twist at the end when they infer what the zoo animals did with Pop’s phone while it was “lost”. A perfect book to add to any primary classroom library! 5 stars

Pete Makes a Mistake
By: Emily Arnold McCully

The I Like to Read books are ideal books for classroom libraries. Pete Makes a Mistake can be used with young readers to help them develop an understanding of character traits by referring to what characters say and do, predicting and inferring the message the story is teaching the reader. When Pete forgets to deliver one invitation for a party, feelings are hurt. But since Pete admits his mistake and does the right thing, all the friends can share in a fun afternoon. 4 stars
