Teachers Rock by Todd Parr
In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, why not read a book that shows teachers a little love?
Todd Parr’s Teachers Rock vibrantly brings to life all of the things teachers do, like encouraging us to be creative, find new talents, and share our favorite things! Why do you love your teacher?
Thank You, Mr. Falker by Patricia Polacco
Patricia Polacco is the author of over 100 books for children. But did you know, she couldn’t read in elementary school?
It wasn’t until her teacher, Mr. Falker, realized that Patricia's reading trouble stemmed from undiagnosed dyslexia, that she was able to learn and go on to write all of those wonderful books.
Thank You, Mr. Falker is a true story told from the heart.
Fish in a Tree by Linda Mullaly Hunt
“Everybody is smart in different ways. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its life believing it is stupid.”
Have you ever felt like a fish trying to climb a tree? Ally feels like that every day in Fish in a Tree, by Lynda Mullaly Hunt.
It’s sixth grade, and Ally still can’t read. Ally isn’t good at reading, but she is good at getting in trouble - at least until Mr. Daniels sees through her stunts and helps her become more confident.
