Early readers and chapter books became a huge part of my life when I moved from fourth to third grade. My students fall hard for chapter books series, and some of their favorite characters can be found in early readers. In today’s post I’ll share the five books I’m nominating for a Nerdy.
Weekends With Max and His Dad
By: Linda Urban
I read this book aloud to my third graders last year. It was a HUGE hit. I’m hopeful that we’ll get a few more books about Max before too long.
Where Are You Going, Baby Lincoln?
Words By: Kate DiCamillo
Pictures By: Chris Van Dusen
This book made me want to jump on a random train to see where it would take me. It is always a joy to spend time in words written by Ms. DiCamillo.
We Are Growing!
By: Laurie Keller
Good luck to the Geisel committee. I thought for sure that Mo Willems would take the prize with the Thank You Book, but Laurie Keller has created something magical here that just might give Mo a run for his money.
The Great Cookie Fiasco
By: Dan Santat
Teaching fractions is not my favorite thing. This book is my all-time favorite thing about fractions. So fun! So funny!
Dance! Dance! Underpants!
By: Bob Shea
The scene where Butter Bear goes to the bathroom is legendary.
