My Top 16 Books in 2016!


Over the next couple of days…I’m sharing my sweet 16! The top 16 books I read this year! Today I’m sharing my top fiction picture book favorites! 


I read They All Saw A Cat to all of my students in K-4th grade! Each class loved it! I highly recommend this book as a read aloud for all ages. My fingers are crossed that it wins a shiny sticker in January!


If you know me….then you know that I’m a huge fan of Salina Yoon’s books. Well, I have a confession. This book is my favorite book by Salina. I think this is the book we need for 2016 and beyond. It is about being different and not fitting in….But then finding someone who loves and understands us just the way we are! Our differences can be our strength! I love this book about being different, true friendship, love and most of all compassion. 


You know it is going to be pure fun and laughter when Ame Dyckman and Zachariah OHora team up! And Horrible Bear delivers! You must read this aloud to kids! This book is not horrible….just hilarious!


Dear Dragon is such a fun story to discuss about perceptions and how we see others through our own lens. This book is a great read aloud to discuss with students. It makes a perfect book to share with pen pals! 

So which picture books did you love in 2016? Remember to check back tomorrow for more of my favorite books! Happy Reading!
