Paige- I read this to my 9th graders and they loved it! Especially when I had to read the more "delicate" parts.

Elizabeth - I read this with my 7-year-old son. We didn't want it to end! "The Invention of Hugo Cabret unfolds its cryptic, magical story in a format that blends elements of picture book, novel, graphic novel, and film. Caldecott Honor-winning author-illustrator Brian Selznick has fashioned an intricate puzzle story that binds the reader like a mesmerist's spell." - Goodreads

Michelle- This version of the classic
Cinderella story was always a big hit with
my elementary students. Great conversation,
connections, and comparisons to other
Cinderella tales are inevitable! Wonderful
addition to a Cinderella Around the World
unit.

to Polacco's story of sibling teasing
and rivalry.

have children (and adults) laughing and
creating interesting visuals to accompany
Silverstein's poems.

Michelle- Precious is too smart and brave
to be tricked or scared by a mean ol' Boo Hag!
This is another story my students in the past
enjoyed. I look forward to reading it whenever
I use McKissack in an author's study.

Michelle- This is a great book to read
anytime of the year, but especially
around the winter holidays. Children
think hard right along with Maria about
how to get out of her predicament.

Michelle- This well crafted story deals
with the hard reality of losing a parent
at an early age and learning to accept
change.

couple who find a magic pot that
doubles anything they put inside.
