There are so many early literacy activities to go along with this list full of my favorite children’s books. I love getting the opportunity to share book recommendations with you all.
So, without further ado, here is a list of books to read and enjoy with your students during children’s book week:
This week is Children’s Book Week, and you know I love that! I’m excited to partner up with some other amazing bloggers to get you “in the mood” for celebrating the week with us!
We’re big into reading both at my house and in my classroom. When I’m reading on my own, I like science fiction and mystery books. When I’m reading with kids, though, I have a much wider range! Apparently, I have a lot of favorite kids’ books — one of my students last year even called me out on it when I was introducing a new book. I said, “this is one of my favorite books” and he replied, “you sure do have a lot of favorite books, Ms. Mary Catherine!” I can’t say that he’s wrong!

WHAT WE’RE READING IN PRESCHOOL
Right now, my preschool kiddos are loving books about camping, flowers, and kindergarten. Here are a few of my favorites (I may get commissions for purchases made through links in this post):
WHAT WE’RE READING AT HOME
Engineer has a variety of favorite books, as well. Honestly, he’s spoiled by my giant collection of children’s books (along with all of the books he calls his own). Right now, he’s really into books about Spider-Man and Transformers, with a few chapter books thrown in there. He also has some picture books he comes back to again and again!
