Planting a Rainbow

by

A mother and child plant a garden every year. They plant all kinds of flowers of different colors. The garden looks like a rainbow. In the summer they pick the flowers and when winter kills all the flowers they know they have next year to look forward to. They get to make there garden again and make a new rainbow. I like the pictures and how they showed the name of all the flowers. I would read this to a kindergarten or 1st grade class. It would make a great book for a picture walk.
Chrysanthemum

by

Chrysanthemum is a very unique name. Chrysanthemum is a little girl who use to love her name until she came to school. The children teased her and thought her name was too long. Mrs. Twinkle is her teacher and loves her name. Chrysanthemum then starts to love her name again and loves the fact that it is different. I thought this book would be perfect for the first day of school. I would only read it to kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade. This would be good for the students and the teacher since some names can be hard to pronounce at first.
Waiting for Wings

by

This book begins with eggs stuck to a leaf. It is revealed that they are caterpillar eggs. The eggs eventually hatch and become caterpillars. The caterpillars begin to eat and prepare to make a cocoon. They then make their cocoons and after some time come out as butterflies. The butterflies fly around and find a garden where they eat nectar from the flowers. Then they have eggs to go lay. In the back of the book there is also information about butterflies and the different types. I would use this book for kindergarten through 3rd grade. It would be a great book to use to make studying butterflies more interesting.
Green Eggs and Ham

by

Sam I am wants a friend to try green eggs and ham. His friend will not eat them with anyone or eat them anywhere. he does not like green eggs and ham. Sam does not give up and his friend tries green eggs and ham. He loves green eggs and ham. He decides he would eat them anytime, with anyone, and anywhere.This book has a lot of rhyming in it and is perfect for children just learning to read. I would read this to children who are in kindergarten and first grade. The art work in the book is a lot of fun and I would even suggest trying choral reading with this book. I would also read it if I had picky eaters in my class or if I wanted them to try something they did not want to try. This book is a fun way to get kids to want to try new things.
Oso pardo, oso pardo, ¿qué ves ahí?

This picture book has all different kinds of animals. The book has a lot of repetition which makes this book good for kindergarten and 1st graders. The book also focuses on senses like hearing and seeing. I would use this book to help children learn to track print. I would try choral reading and really focus on some of the rhyming words. I might also do a picture walk with this book since the art work is so neat.
