Celebrate National Library Week! Books I Love: The Monster at the end of this Book starring Lovable, Furry Old Grover

A first day of school tradition!

1. My favorite book growing up.

2. Now my favorite read aloud.

3. Why is it so great you ask? There is yelling, suspense, begging, and some awesome kid humor.

4. So many opportunities for changing voices and making a connection with my students right away.

5. Strange fact: I keep a concert ticket (Pearl Jam/Rolling Stones 1997) in this book. It’s been there since my first day of teaching. I always tell the kids it’s a sign of my trust to keep it there.

What are your favorite books from childhood?

  1. there was this picture book called “arty the smarty” about a fish who always willfully swam against the direction the school was going– more a lesson about the importance of being yourself than about the importance of going with the crowd.

    a few years ago, my sister found an old copy of it online and bought it for me. that’s why she’s awesome.

    and i love the grover book. thought i’m not sure i’d leave my stones ticket stub in there.
