Book Collections

As you may know, I bring in various book collections from the public library to share with the crew. I hope that over time they will all find some books, authors or series that they love. I haven't been very good at sharing what these collections are with you this year and knowing some of these titles might be helpful when you are at the library with your child looking for good books. So below are some recent collections.

We just finished looking at the Katie Woo series of books. Katie Woo is a series of early chapter books about a first grade girl who has many of the same adventures and problems that our crew has - being bossy, losing a tooth, going camping, having the flu and more. To learn more about the Katie Woo series of books, click here.


We also just finished looking at books by author/illustrator Marla Frazee. Her illustrations are so detailed that you can spend a long time just noticing little things in each picture. They are also great stories.




This week we are taking a look at one of my very favorite series of books - the Henry and Mudge series. This series about the adventures of a boy and his dog are so sweet and have lots of appeal to first graders (and their teacher).



This week we are also looking at books by the illustrator Jim LaMarche. His illustrations are soft and beautiful and make you linger on each page. Again, the stories that go with the illustrations are great, too. You should take a look.
