           by Phillip C. Stead.                         by Peter Catalanotto                     by Tad Hills
        Students thought it was sweet.            Made them think                Related to own writing process.

                                                          Hello! Hello by Matthew Cordell
Was a great reminder to take a 
look around every now and then.

After 6 books, they voted on their favorite so far..... Memoirs of a Goldfish was the winner with This is Not My Hat at a fairly close second place.

Coming up next...

Do you have a favorite picture book?


  1. Mrs. McAllister was just here visint the Windham Public Library. She showed me that her class had a wonderful article in the Kidsville News. I wish I was in your class and had all that time for reading. Last year I kept a list of all the books I read and was surprised at how many there were when I added them up. However, there's always more to read. - Mrs. Parker, Children's Librarian
