The Secret Garden

Heart-warming story about a young boy who was believed to be too sick to go outside, and how his friendship with a young girl helped him more than medicine. A good book to teach the value of friends, health, and how to develop a plot when writing.

The Help

Excellent story of three black maids in Mississippi during the early 1960's, as they began to secretly write their stories. It opens up the struggles that black women faced every day as they worked for white people. A good book to teach older students about conflict between characters and society.

A funny book about a kindergartner who is afraid that monsters may be under her bed. This a good book for emerging readers, because is gets the young reader involved. This book helps beginning readers know that reading can be fun.

The story of a farm girl who saves the smallest pig and how it grew into a prize-winner with the help of his animal friends. A good book to teach setting and theme. Friendships are important and this book helps to reinforce the theme of friendship.
Histoire de Pierre Lapin

A cute story of a rabbit who takes chances in his quest for food. A good book to use when teaching about plot and sequencing. Also can be used to teach cause and effect.
David Copperfield

by

A heart-warming story of the struggles of a young boy growing up in England, in the 19th century, without a loving family. This is a good story to teach the history of life and the struggles of growing up in a world where children were not well cared for. Charles Dickens shares the struggles that he faced as a child. Good for teaching that you can become successful even if you have problems as a child.
