1. If You Take a Mouse to School by Laura Numeroff
2. There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Books by Lucille Colandro
3. Bats at the Library by Brian Lies
Kevin Henkes quite a few times here on the blog. I just adore his stories and illustrations! This is a wonderful story about a little mouse who worries about everything! So you can imagine the anxiety she feels the night before school. It's a perfect story to talk about back-to-school jitters and to discuss text-to-self connections. I believe every student can connect with Wemberly, which makes it the perfect story for the beginning of the school year. Check back on Wednesday to score some freebies for this book to celebrate Wild About Books Wednesday!
5. Hooway For Wodney Rat by Helen Lester
