I cannot draw. Not at all. But Peter H. Reynolds' books encouraged me to imagine, make my mark and accept "ish" drawings. Students will love his drawings, characters and messages. Perfect for all ages to study!
"Believe in the Possible." I love this message from Jennifer L. Holm's new book The Fourteenth Goldfish. Let me know what you think! I think it would be a great read-aloud sure to evoke laughter & conversation.

Out of My Mind

Told from her point of view, hers is a story you will never forget. Ideal for 4th grade & up. Edmodo teacher group code is 1lv3ds. Visit the author's website to learn more.
Marty Mcguire does not like dresses. She does not want to be a princess. She does not want to be the lead princess in the school play. But she comes up with her own plan to improve the play and it's an unforgettable show. Ideal for 1st - 3rd grade. Edmodo teacher group code is vx1eqz.
Charlotte's Web is my favorite book from my childhood. It is a story of friendship and courage. Wilbur the pig has an unsure future until a certain spider helps him out.
