10 Great Picture Books from 2012 (click through for all 10)

Looking at Lincoln ((Historical Fiction))

  • Bethany Taylor

    This book is about a girl who learns all about Lincoln. It's a really fun book the pictures are absolutely amazing and it has a cool font. It gives fun facts about Lincoln and all of his favorite things and makes a whole story out of it. I would definitely use this in my class I loved it.

What to to do about Alice? ((Historical Fiction))

  • Bethany Taylor

    This book was so fun! I didn't even know about Alice Roosevelt until I read this book, but it was so fun. I would definitely use this in my classroom to talk about Washington and the Presidents. It did a great job of showing what it is like to live in the White House and the expectations that are placed on you.

The Secret Birthday Message ((Picture Story Book))

  • Bethany Taylor

    This is such a fun and colorful book. It teaches kids about shapes and the whole book is a scavenger hunt and the pages are cut in cool ways that make it exciting to read. You could make a scavenger hunt for your class with a surprise at the end.

The Very Busy Spider ((Picture Story Book))

  • Bethany Taylor

    The very busy spider is a story of a spider who is trying to weave his web but keeps getting asked to come and play with all the farm animals. It teaches kids animal sounds and is fun to read. You could read this book to your class for fun or you could tie it into a lesson about animals.

Pancakes, Pancakes! ((Picture Story Book))

  • Bethany Taylor

    This is a book about a boy that wants his mom to make him pancakes, but first he has to gather all the right things so they can make them together. This would be a great book to use in your class to practice sequencing. It can also teach students where certain foods come from.

The Very Quiet Cricket ((Picture Story Book))

  • Bethany Taylor

    The very quiet cricket is a great book to teach kids about all types of insects and the sounds they make. You could easily tie this story into a science lesson to teach kids about insects that are unfamiliar to them. You could have a bug collection in older grades and maybe go outside and read the book and then go on a bug hunt.

Walter the Baker ((Picture Story Book))

  • Bethany Taylor

    This was unlike a lot of the other Eric Carle books I read. Carle wrote this using his German heritage and it is a great story that children would enjoy. You could use this in an author study on Carle or even just for fun. It is a great book.

The Princess and the Pizza ((Traditional Literature))

  • Bethany Taylor

    This book is a twist on the original Princess and the Pea I believe. It was a good book and It would be cool to compare and contrast it with the original one in your classroom. This illustrations are very good and it's an overall fun book.

Three Little Kittens ((Mother Goose))

  • Bethany Taylor

    This classic mother goose tale is great and this book illustrated it well! I loved it!! and I loved that it used a large font. This is a great book for small children.

Noah's Ark ((Wordless Book))

  • Bethany Taylor

    The Wordless Picture book is a Caldecott award winner. It has vivid and detailed pictures that tell the story. It actualy has some words. But it is a great book and could be used to show animals to the kids.

10 Little Rubber Ducks ((Counting Book))

  • Bethany Taylor

    This counting book is fun and also teaches direction. It would be cool to get a tub of water and bring it to the classroom and use numbered rubber ducks to show the directions in the water and practice counting it would make a good center also.

Where is the Green Sheep? ((Concept book: colors))

  • Bethany Taylor

    This book focuses on colors. There are so many different activities and ways you could incorporate this into your class. You could do an art activity with it for sure. It's a fun and playful book to read.

Mother Goose ((Mother Goose Book))

  • Bethany Taylor

    This book combines lots of different mother goose stories into one. It would be a great book to introduce the children to mother goose tales to get them interested and then actually read each one that's mentioned in the book over a period of time.

Eats, Shoots, & Leaves ((Concept Book: Commas))

  • Bethany Taylor

    This is such a fun book about comma usage. It would be great to tie this into your english lesson to make it more fun for the students. You could also come up with some funny examples like the book does and put them in groups and let them come up with ones to put up on the wall. This book shows how important commas are.

A Remainder of One ((Informational))

  • Bethany Taylor

    This would be an ideal book to use in a lesson on division. I'm not sure that there are a ton of books to help with division, but this is a great one. It would be great to use it in the classroom to help the children better understand it and just to relax and enjoy more of what they are doing.

The Tiny Seed ((Informational))

  • Bethany Taylor

    This book shows what environments are good/bad for plants to grow. It talks about different weather conditions and would be good to use in science class. You could do an experiment and grow plants in different conditions.

Somewhere in the Ocean ((Informational))

  • Bethany Taylor

    This book gives a lot of great information about ocean animals. It mainly shows the habitats of each sea creature and what they eat. Also, at the end of the book it gives facts on each animal and a song that you could teach to the class. This would be fun to use in science class or a unit on animals.

Michael Recycle ((Informational Book))

  • Bethany Taylor

    This would be a good book to introduce to kids what recycling is and then have them as a class start recycling. The book gives kids practical ways to start recycling and at the end of the book gives some facts and tips.

The Diary of a Spider ((Informational book))

  • Bethany Taylor

    I loved this book. I thought it was hilarious and informational at the same time. I also think it would be great to assign each student a different bug or animal and have them make a diary for it just like his book and give some facts and even some humor that relates to the bug assigned to them.

Fancy Nancy Poetry Extraordinaire! ((Poetry))

  • Bethany Taylor

    I thought this was a great book! The coolest thing about it was that i got ideas for the classroom inside of the story. It would be very cool to make a Poet-tree and have the children write their own poems on the leaves to put up on the Poetry Tree. I also like how it introduced some older poets, gave ways for kids to get inspired to write poems, and then at the end gave actual poems. The illustrations were fun and I will for sure be using this book one day.

Dirt On My Shirt ((Poetry))

  • Bethany Taylor

    This was a good collection of small poems that were child friendly and fun. This would be a good book to use to show students that writing poems isn't difficult and can actually be quite funny.
