There are so many amazing picture books available to us, and I think picture books are an incredible resource for teachers at all grade levels! Picture books are short enough to share in a single seating, and can be used to teach all different types of reading skills and strategies. Choosing my top 10 favorite picture books is an impossible task; however, here are 10 of my favorites.
|Piggie Pie! by Margie Palatini|
|Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast by Josh Funk|
|George vs. George by Rosalyn Schanzer|
3. George vs. George by Rosalyn Schanzer tells the story of the American Revolution from both sides. I love using picture books to integrate in our social studies curriculum, and this book is perfect during our study of the Revolutionary War. The book has lots of good factual information about the lives of King George III and George Washington before, during, and after the war. The book is excellent for focusing on looking at multiple perspectives of an event in history.
|Train to Somewhere by Eve Bunting|
|Stellaluna by Janell Cannon|
|The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt|
|The Junkyard Wonders by Patricia Polacco|
|Bad Boys by Margie Palatini|
|Peanut Butter & Cupcake by Terry Border|
|The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! by Jon Scieszka|
I'm always on the lookout for new children's literature that I can use in my classroom. I think picture books are one of the best ways that we can teach students new skills & strategies.
