We are continuing our series of How to Select Books. This week we are talking about choosing books from a list. I showed them several books with list including Anita Silvey’s 100 Best Books for Children and Jim Trelease’s Read Aloud Handbook.
I also talked about lists that can be downloaded from the internet including Amazon’s Best Children’s Books and NEA ‘s Teacher’s Top 100 List. We then read a book from the Teacher’s Top 100 List – Harold and the Purple Crayon .

This week, I’m reading Exclamation Mark by Amy Rosenthal, illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld.
We talked briefly about personification, where human qualities are given to animals or objects.
Each week I have different bookmarks. This week the bookmark was from Tom Lichtenheld’s website, printed on yellow paper, of course.
