Good question - Gooney Bird Green! This is the first year I read it to my class. I will continue to read it each year. Each day my kids asked for Gooney Bird.

I think I will have add Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as a must read. (33 years - wow!)

It's the one about the spelling bee. We read it right before the spelling bee, of coarse!

I'm reading Poppy to my kids right now and we all love it! We read Tale of Despereaux right before this and they love that both books are about mice.

I just finished my favorite- The Prince of the Pond. It's a version of the Frog Prince. My kids loved it and were sad when it ended. They were talking about how much they wished the author (Donna Jo Napoli) would write what happens next. One girl said, "let's write her a letter" and so I put the next lesson on hold and said "great idea!" They were so excited about this. I can't wait to show up on Monday with her sequel to this book.

My Father's Dragon
Elmer and the Dragon
Dragons of Blueland

I read them all the beginning of the year. The kids love them.

A PP wrote about Gooney Bird Greene. I love that one too and think I'll start the year with that. It's great to talk about two things...writing/telling a story and raising their hands!

The Doll People and the sequels by Ann M. Martin. All of the students, even the boys, love to hear about the adventures that the dolls go on. I believe there are three books in the series

I always start the year with A Toad for Tuesday. It's short and only takes about a week to read. I also love George's Marvelous Medicine, Pleasing the Ghost, and Stone Fox.

My kids are absolutely in love with the faraway tree stories at the moment. I HAVE to read at least one chapter every day, and they are always disappointed when I stop and beg for more. I also love reading the kids anything by roald dahl.

This year my class has loved the Humphrey series about a class hamster. There are 5 books in the series so far. We read 3 of them. They also enjoyed the Doll People series and Toys Go out and Toy Dance Party (sequel). I really enjoyed the Seven Wonders of Sasafras Springs. It was my first time reading it and we all enjoyed that one too. I love Gooseberry Park and Edward Tulane also.

Any book by Bill Wallace, but especially "Up Chuck and the Rotten Willey". So adorable, and great message about friends! It is the first chapter book I read.
