It’s Treat Tuesday! What are you reading….I mean eating?!
Tuesday is my favorite day of the week because I get to read….and eat Treats! YUM! A huge thank you to Shannon Houghton for the Treat Tuesday meme picture. Check out her fabulous blog Ms. Houghton’s Class.
The Big Fat Cow That Goes Kapow by Andy Griffiths Illustrated by Terry Denton goes well with Gummi Worms!
“This is Willy. Willy the worm. He goes to school to learn how to squirm.”- The Big Fat Cow That Goes Kapow
As a new teacher to second grade I have been looking for books this year that will grab my reluctant readers. Luckily, I have found books that my students love such as the Fly Guy series by Tedd Arnold and pretty much any book by Mo Willems. But I was looking for more early reader books. So I turned to my Twitter friends and asked for book recommendations. My friend John Schu responded. He has read a gazillion books for children and always knows just what to recommend. This time was no exception. He recommended The Big Fat Cow That Goes Kapow! and many other great early reader books. Now I can’t wait to share this book with my second graders. I think my students will love it because it is easy to read and the pictures and words are really funny. I also like how the book looks like a higher level chapter book even though it is an early reader. That will appeal to my students as well. So if you are also looking for fun early reader books for the children in your life or classroom I recommend books by Andy Griffiths. Also, you should follow John Schu’s blog Watch. Connect. Read. for more great book ideas. Now check out some videos with the author Andy Griffiths.
So where do you go for book recommendations? Twitter? Facebook? Friends? Family? What is a favorite treat or book you have read recently? I look forward to your response in the comments section.
