My Heart is Like a Zoo by Michael Hall - awesome book, and someone actually took the ideas in the book and used them, awesome, awesome, awesome! I personally think this book would be great to read and then do a craft based off an animal or two from the book in honor of some sort of animal holiday . . . such as July being touted as Wild About Animals Month.

The Wonderful Happens
A book about all the wonderful things that happen in the universe...including each and every one of us!
beautiful book. great for baby gift as well as for reading aloud; shows the value of a child
After listening to the story, students in Pre-K - 1st grade use costumes to "act out" the parts of the story. The tape that goes with it makes the story. I sing it year round I've done it so many years it just pops in my head randomly. "Once there was a witch who wanted to make pumpkin pie..." Sing it with me!

Elephant and Piggie comic strips. Another language arts sub save-the-day. Could talk about elements of short story before doing this.

Elephant and Piggie books by Mo Willems! Comic Strip Printable Activity - My students love the elephant and piggie books. When we have library time I see them trying to retell the story in their own words, acting it out with puppets, or stuffed animals, and requesting a read aloud. I used the graphics from Mo Willems to create a few simple story outlines for the kids to create their own story. The students loved this idea and came up with some extremely creative stories.
