I adore this story, always have, always will. I hate the movie! I love how the pictures get bigger as Max goes deeper into the story.
This is an excellent story for teaching cause and effect. I also use it at the beginning of the year to talk about if everyone colored on the tables, if everyone pulled leaves from trees etc., etc., etc! The class gets a big kick out of this one and usually read it on their own as well.
An adorable story about what it means to be yourself no matter what. Molly Lou Melon is liked by boys and girls alike! Another book I bring out at the very beginning of the year.
I use this at the beginning of the year to talk about our names, and then we make nameplates! It also talks about being proud of who you are! (the link for this book is a big book, I could not find the regular paperback on Amazon.
I'm definitely thinking about the beginning of the year! All these are my must have books at the start of the school year.
Thank you Lindsey@theteacherwife for my very first linky!
