This year I could not get excited about any of the picture books that related to the "Every Hero has a Story" theme. I usually look for books that has humor enough to make a kindergartner laugh as well as make a third grader laugh. During the last couple of weeks, I used these books as my three main reads when visiting with classes:
- The Book with No Pictures by B.J. Novak
- Peter Spit a Seed at Sue by Jackie French Koller, illustrated by John Manders
- I Ain't Gonna Paint No More by Karen Beaumont, illustrated by David Catrow
I had a great time sharing these books with the students. You know you have winning books when there is a hippo named Boo Boo Butt, watermelon seeds in underwear, and a kid covered in paint.
