We will update this booklist as students recommend books that they've read in school or at home. Students are most motivated to read when they are interested in the book. Check back often for recommendations!
by Shelley Moore Year Published: 2015
Students love the humor and repetitive language in this book, No, No Kitten .
Meet Kitten--she wants catnip and milk and a basket. She also wants a helmet and lasers and a puppy (!). And she wants to go to Jupiter, with that helmet, those lasers, and said puppy--don't underestimate her. This witty picture book, about longing for what's just out of reach, will appeal to both girls and boys who've always wanted to do the impossible. NO, NO, KITTEN! takes flight on the power of imagination and one feline's ambitious dreams

Another favorite of Mo Willem's books. Students love the excitement of seeing what Piggie and Gerald are waiting for.
Waiting is Not Easy, In Waiting Is Not Easy!, Piggie has a surprise for Gerald, but he is going to have to wait for it. And Wait. And wait some more...

Students love all of the Mo Willems books that we have in class. This is one of the most requested books.
Should I Share My Ice Cream? Mo Willems has crafted a funny story about the challenges of doing the right thing. Fans of the Geisel Award-winning duo will eagerly eat it up!

Don't Push The Button is one of a few interactive books that Bill Cotter wrote.
Students love this interactive book. They ask us to read it over and over. It's one of the first books they grab when they have free reading time.
There's only one rule in Larry's book: don't push the button.(Seriously, don't even think about it!) Even if it does look kind of nice, you must never push the button. Who knows what would happen? Okay, quick. No one is looking... push the button.Uh, oh.
