Picture books for 4th grade

I have to do some read alouds for my 4th graders this week. I usually read chapter books, but for video I need picture books. Any recommendations?

I'm doing picture books related to our curriculum/standards, so as to keep the momentum and learning going.

Before we "got kicked out of school" (ha), we were studying Folktales.

So, I am continuing that theme at home.

*Fairy Tales
*Fables
*Legends
*Myths
*Tall Tales

Do you have fiction/nonfiction standards to teach? Maybe start there. (?)

Otherwise, I don't have any specific titles to recommend. Hopefully others do.

Look at books by Patricia Polacco. Many of her picture books would be good for older kids.

You might also try any of Chris van Allsburg's books. I used to read them to second graders, but over the years found the students were not as "sophisticated" as they used to be. I would think they'd be perfect for fourth. There are many ways to incorporate his books into lessons, plus they are just great reads. Enjoy!

Patricia Polacco books. Some could generate a lot of discussion. Same with Chris Van Allsburg.
Not sure what your timeline is but The Invention of Hugo Cabret dovetails with Social Studies and Science, too.

I agree with all the author suggestions above and will add Eve Bunting and Lester Laminack to the list.

My favorite picture book by Patricia Polacco is Pink & Say.

You can probably google and find a lot of activities.

Patricia Polacco-the best!
In May, I traditionally do a biography unit.
So Wilma Unlimited by Kathleen Krull is a great bio.

I agree with Chris VanAllsburg books for older kids.

Eve Bunting and Cynthia Rylant are some of my other favorites for this age group.
