Peter's Chair

by

Peter's Chair is a fantastic book dealing with childhood jealousy and confusion about the arrival of a new sibling. It's a great book to share with children who are going to have a new sibling to help them deal with their feelings. Ezra Jack Keats' books are fantastic means of discussing feelings with students, allowing the teacher to ask students to examine what the characters are feeling and what parts of the text show them those feelings.
Green Eggs and Ham

by

One of my favorite Dr. Seuss books. As with all Seuss books it's full of rhythm and rhyming but in such an enjoyable way. Green Eggs and Ham allows students to explore their imagination with fantastic illustrations and an unusual story line. It's a relatable story to children as well as they tend to be such picky eaters, much like our main character.
Where the Wild Things Are

by

This is a beautiful book that tells the tale of a young boy struggling to behave the way he is expected to. Max has an extraordinary imagination that takes him on a fantastic adventure to a world full of "wild things" like Max. Throughout the book Max learns that although he sometimes feels put-out by this mother, she really loves him and he really needs her. He chooses to leave his wild world and return home to his newly appreciated life. This book is a great read for elementary students, showing them how far their imaginations can take them.
The True Story Of the Three Little Pigs

by

Such a creative and interesting twist on the old story of the Three Little Pigs. It allows the 'Big Bad' Wolf to tell his side of the story, a friendly neighbor looking for a cup of sugar and just happens to eat the pigs. It's a fun story to read to children, especially if they are familiar with the original story.
A Letter to Amy

by

Ezra Jack Keats' books are fantastic means of discussing feelings with students, allowing the teacher to ask students to examine what the characters are feeling and what parts of the text show them those feelings. A Letter to Amy would be beneficial in a classroom where the boys and the girls are reluctant to play with each other, showing that it's okay when boys and girls are friends.
Goggles!

by

Ezra Jack Keats' books are fantastic means of discussing feelings with students, allowing the teacher to ask students to examine what the characters are feeling and what parts of the text show them those feelings. Goggles! allows a discussion about bullying and how a student feels when they're being threatened by others.
