The Books we grew up on; Still as good as Ever!

I must warn you- this post will be mostly picture-less. I am writing it from my 27 hour escapade from Naples Italy to Mississippi. My computer decided to hate wifi in the airports so alas I am writing from my phone. Eek.

Without further ado, my all time favorite class children's books! Whenever I think of classic books I usually think of young adult or adult novels, but there are so many wonderful children's classics! Books that have stood the test of time and still manage to bring joy to the hearts of little ones. These are my top picks for classic children's stories;

 Blueberries for Sal- Such a lovely little story that parallels Sal and her mother picking blueberries on one side of the mountain, while a bear cub and his mother eat berries on the other side. My students have found this books so enticing with its single color illustrations.

 The Giving Tree- Need I say more? This books never fails to make me tear up everytime I read it. 

The Carrot Seed- Persistence, hope, love and care all wrapped up in one teeny book. A perfect easy reader for our on level firsties that teaches such beautiful and important lessons.

 The Snowy Day- I have to be honest, no hate, but Ezra Jack Keats has never been one of my favorites. Nevertheless this makes the list because my students LOVE it, it is a classroom favorite by far. Along with Peter's Chair.

 Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs- We always read this book over a few days because it is so long. Full of humor for bother adults and kids, I always get a kick out of this read aloud.
