Magic Tree House - A series of really fun chapter books full of adventure that explores all over the world in all different time periods. My kids love them and learn from them and there are also research guides that provide extra information about the subject of the individual books. These books are fun to read and easy to learn from.
Picture Book: Piggies by Audrey and Don Wood is a cute little bed-time story about ten little piggies who play energetically from fingers to toes being hot, cold, clean, dirty, and good and finally kiss goodnight.
Quick as a Cricket by Audrey Wood is a book about a child that describes himself as many different animals. This book would be a great way to teach students about comparing using similes. It would also be a good book for students to practice their imagination by thinking about themselves and what animals they are like and their personality traits.
