Green Wilma

Green Wilma - Tedd Arnold

This book is silly and absurd but absolutely unforgettable.  WIlma wakes up green and craving bugs and everything is weird the rest of her day.  This book would be fun to read with grades 2-4.

It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown - Charles M. Schulz

This book is a good book for Elementary grades during October.  It was teach about pumpkins as well as about fall.  The book keeps the attention of the reader by using an iconic cartoon to make the book funny.

A Porcupine Named Fluffy

A Porcupine Named Fluffy - Helen Lester, Lynn M. Munsinger

A Porcupine Named Fluffy is a great book for the 3rd grade level.  The porcupine learns how he is different and how he is perfect just the way he is.  He also meets new friends along the way.


Coraline - Neil Gaiman

This book i would definitely recommend for older grades, maybe 5th grade and up.  The book itself is scary and it can be perceived in many different ways that would be very scary to younger children.

Boundless Grace

Boundless Grace - Mary Hoffman

This was a really good book.  I recommend this book for 1st-5th grade, with the older children answering more complex questions about the message of the book.  I think that this could be used in many ways in the classroom. One way I have used it with my students was to teach that there are many different types of families around the world.

Coraline - Neil Gaiman

I think that this book would work best for older grades. 5th or 6th grade would be what I would recommend it for.

I would use this book if I was doing a study of banned books with my students.
