happy Sunday

Just for fun I want to tell you the top 10 picks from the kids from the nea website. They are indeed different than the teachers but all the same good reads too. 1. Harry Potter (series) by J.K. Rowling 2. Goosebumps (series) by R.L. Stine 3. Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss 4. The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seusss 5. Arthur (series) by Marc Brown 6. Charlotte's Web by E.B. White 7. Shiloh (trilogy) by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor 8. Hatchet by Gary Paulsen 9. Holes by Louis Sachar 10. The Giver by Lois Lowry
Some of these books are for older children, say grades 5 and 6 but that is good because they need good stories to keep them interested and challenged as they continue on their reading journey. For a complete list please check out the nea website and get the top 100 books from a kids point of view. Remember that reading to children of all ages is very beneficial and fosters great bonding times around a good book. Keep on reading......
