    First Grade Schoolhouse: What is Your Prediction? Do Not Open This Book! by Joy Cowley is a wonderful big book to promote the love of reading. It can be used to introduce making predictions and works well for shared reading. Children love to read along with this book. Of course, they will want the teacher to turn each page, even though the rat begs them to stop and not go on.
