Teachers, you can make fun, interactive, and informative games, or you can create surveys for your class to use. Spend a little time looking at quizzes/surveys that other’s have made. I hope that you love this site as much as I do. I am working on my first one about genre. I will post it here, when it is completed. For now, have fun on the site!
Our first introduction to this author was The Doghouse, and it was just the right amount of scary and then silly to be engaging for my early readers. Rhyming Dust Bunnies and Can You Make a Scary Face? are a just a couple of our other favorites. We also love how the story continues all the way to the back cover.
If you have a preschooler through 3rd grader, you should check out Mo Willems. His books vary from engaging easy readers to humorous read aloud books. A favorite in my family is The Pigeon Finds a Hotdog. You can play games or look at books on his website. The games are geared toward a younger audience. His published books have a wider age range appeal.
Whether you are 4 or 104, I hope that you enjoy reading the books recommended on this site. The recommendations come from my students, other LITS (Library Information Technology Specialists), and myself. Happy Reading!
