Every year I read "Because of Winn-Dixie" outloud and EVERY single year I cry! I know what's going to happen but the part when they are out looking for him in the rain gets me every year! My kids think I'm nuts!

Every year I read Cricket in Times Square ( I cry when Chester leaves and Mario realizes he is gone) and I read a biography on the Wright brothers and I cry when their mother dies. The kids think I am nuts too. I think it is o.k. when the students see us showing emotion and care for others.

I cry every year when I read Charlotte's Web. It gets me every single time!

When I read The Cricket in Times Square, I was ok. I have no idea why, but I wasn't as sad.

The books that make you cry

Charlotte's Web gets me every time.
The Night of Los Posadas made me cry this year.
The Tale of Despereaux - the coda when the author tells you to imagine that she is Despereaux whispering a story into your ear.

I am a big baby when it comes to great children's lit.

That's a sign of excellent writing/story-telling.

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. I cry in the middle and at the end.

Since my mom developed Alzheimer's I cannot read Wilfred Gordon McWilliams Partridge.

The class read-aloud is one of my favorite parts of the day, but Charlotte and Edward Tulane do it to me! The very first time I read Edward and finished the chapter when the little sister dies, one of my boys jumped up and quietly said he needed to call his mom. By the time he reached the office I had called her and let her know what was coming.
I've had kiddos read the chapter when Charlotte dies. Can't do it !

Yes, we are reading Stone Fox right now and have 2 more chapters to go....I always read that part (instead of having a student read) when we get to it and always get a lump in my throat.....same for Island of the Blue Dolphins.......pretty much if there is a dog in it, the dog is a goner at some point....geesh!!

Stone Fox was always the book that got me, and then we would show the movie and it would get me again.

My sixth grade teacher read Where the Red Fern Grows to our class. I still wonder what in the world was wrong with that woman because she didn't cry.

did it for me - my children looked at me rather strangely. I was reading it (leading by example )while they were doing silent reading so I think it took them by surprise!

One of my girls last year read Private Peaceful and was crying at her desk (which alarmed some of the boys).
