Favorite Books

Check out our monthly "favorite book" for early learners! Here you'll find books for you to read to and with your child, as well as books your child can read to you as they start learning! I love using seasonal texts and authentic learning activities that coincide with what children are learning. 

Book #1: January 

The Mitten by Jan Brett

I love this book for so many reasons! It is a great winter-themed story with beautiful illustrations and a lot of skill practice hidden inside. This text is great for retelling: retelling is an important pre-reading skill. This just means that your child can tell the major parts of the story from memory or by using the pictures as a tool. Read the story together and then work together to tell what happened in order.  

There Was a Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow

This book is part of a much-loved series for just about every season and holiday! It is another great way for students to practice retelling and sequencing. It is a silly book with a funny surprise at the end that children this age LOVE! 

Book #2: February

Book #3: March

How to Catch a Leprechaun

This seasonal book is so much fun for young children! The magic of rainbows, pots of gold and leprechauns is such an amazing part of this age group. I used this book in Kindergarten to practice “How to” step by step writing, but this can also be used to practice oral language skills. There’s also a ton of leprechaun related activities you can do after reading. So much fun!

Book #4: April

This is a short and sweet rhyming book- perfect for spring! It's a great conversation starter about new seasons and all of the fun things to look forward to in the spring.
