Thoughts and Ideas from a Classroom Teacher

Favorite Read Alouds

on January 12, 2012

I think that every teacher has his or her favorite read aloud books to share with their children and students. I don’ t know of any age group that doesn’t love a read aloud book either, even if they won’t admit it. I polled my friends tonight for some of the books that they love, and I thought I’d share them here. I definitely think I’ve added to my “to read” list. Oooh… If you are looking for a place to keep track of books you read and ones you’d like to check out, try Shelfari.  My bookshelf is HERE.
