Read, Read, Read...and don't forget Pete the Cat!

Miss Nelson over at Run! Miss Nelson's Got the Camera is having a great linky party!

Favorite read alouds... now that's a linky after my own heart.

Confession: My hubby was certain I would wipe out our savings on children's books when I first started teaching... and I can't blame him. I had  have an obsession for children's literature.

Does anyone else love the smell of a freshly opened book?? Like, straight from the factory fresh. For as long as I can remember, my nose goes straight into the middle of a book when I pick it up off a shelf. It's strange, I'll admit... but you should try it sometime. It's the best smell ever!! I swear those publishing companies create this amazing smell so I buy more books. It's like teacher crack.

Okay, so enough with my strange quirks... let's get the party started shall we?!

Here's my classroom no particular order {PTL, cause I could never choose}
The Giving Tree
Martina the Beautiful Cockroach
The Lorax (Classic Seuss)
Our Tree Named SteveWhoever You Are (Reading Rainbow Book)

and OF COURSE I have to include ANY book with this little friend:
Pete the Cat
My students would be so disappointed in my list if I left him out!

So what's on your list? Link up and share!!


  1. Can't go wrong with the lorax ;) especially since the kids recognize it from the movie!!

    Jessica Stanford
    I'd love for you to join my first linky ;)

  2. Thanks for linking up. I really need to read Martina.

    1. Yes!! It's great for respect, culture (it's a Cuban folktale) and a good laugh! My kids love singing her name on every page!! I bet your school library has it.


  3. Thanks for the great read alouds! I haven't heard of many of the titles and love finding new great books! I love your blog! The owl is so cute!
