This week's theme: Death/Aging
|A Dog Like Jack by Anne DiSalvo-Ryan|
Can you say Marley?
|Everett Anderson's Goodbye by Lucille Clifton|
|Song and Dance Man by Karen Ackerman|
|The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore|
This is another one of those "I found it on the shelf" books. I love it!
|The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton|
It's not just living things that age!
|The Two of Them by Aliki|
|The Old Woman Who Named Things by Cynthia Rylant|
My students really liked this book. They understood that she was lonely and they liked that she got a dog in the end.
|Grandpa Green by Lane Smith|
This book might seem like a short book, but the illustrations and the theme are very beautiful.
|Nana Upstairs and Nana Downstairs by Tomie dePaola|
This book reminds me of a former 2nd grade student, Nicholas. When he arrived to our school, he had recently moved in the his Nana and Papa. I never cease to be amazed by what students have to overcome in life. He loved this book.
|Love You Forever by Robert Munsch|
