“There was a loud sound of a throat being cleared, and the three turned around toward the desk. Standing on it, in worn overalls and a wide brimmed hat, was a little man the size of a pencil.”

As a kid I watched the Spiderwick movies, but I never knew they were a book series until I came across this book at a local library! I loved the use of language and the fantasy world that the author portrays in this book. It is like you‘re experiencing a world with the characters where you never know what is going to happen next, but it is definitely going to surprise you. A great modern fantasy book for young readers!

I would love to have this book if I teach older elementary schoolers! It would keep their attention and show them a point of view that they have never seen before since we live in such modern times!

The Little House on the Prairie book series is so wonderful and makes you feel as if you‘re in the pioneer times with the family. I grew up with these books and it was great to read them again! This book is suitable for older elementary school readers, and encompasses the feeling and lifestyle of the pioneer times. It is a perfect historical fiction book

This book was a different look at Martin Luther King‘s fight for equality. This book looked closer into the words he said, and the ways he impacted people with his teachings and words. It shows us how everyone is special in their own way regardless of who they are. I love how the title of the book is on the back and the cover is a huge picture of him smiling

This book was an in-depth story of all the various laws, wars, activists, and other important events from the Civil Rights Movement. The images were all black and white to emphasize the historical value of the book. It is a chapter book, so it is more suitable for older readers in fourth or fifth grade, the book is so rich with information about this challenging time

This book was a new perspective of the Civil Rights Movement that was told from the perspective of a child who was a member of the family that pushed for the Civil Rights Act of 1965. It was a powerful story about the impact that only a few people can have on the entire world

This Civil Rights Movement book is all about the childhood of Martin Luther King and how he knew from just a young boy that he was going to be destined for greatness and change in the world. It is all about inspiring people to stand up for what they believe in and what they dream of. Inspiring book for children

This book was a perspective on the death of Martin Luther King Jr that I had never heard before. The cart that carries his coffin was once considered useless, but now it is considered one of the most valuable pieces of history. This was a sad and lighthearted story that is a moment in history people should never forget. Suitable for young readers

This African Culture book is very pleasing to the eye to look at with it‘s almost chalk like drawings. It depicts the time of the Civil Rights Movement where Martin Luther King Jr fought to bring the races of white and black together and desegregate the country.

This nonfiction book is all about how a child handles divorce from the child‘s own perspective. I love how it looks as if the child has written the book on lined paper and drawn pictures. It‘s a great book to have in case a child is going through a divorce in my classroom. The images use real people which adds to the genuine story

I love the multiple languages in this book for a lesson in class on other cultures, and also some children in my classroom will be speaking Spanish and English at home so it is important to represent them

This classic folktale book was the exact mirror of the original version of The Three Little Pigs. I really enjoyed it and I loved that there was a Spanish portion of the book to teach children more about other languages and will help for dual language learners as well!

This Indian folktale book was so cute and exciting. The pictures were beautiful and really embodies the colorful culture of India. The tale about the elephant and his dog friend was one of my favorite ones from the book. The style of images are almost comic like which is one of children‘s favorite styles from my past experiences!

This fairytale book combines the three most well known tales of The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, and the Boy Who Cried Wolf. It was a very entertaining and exciting story because the author took the original tales and gave them their own unique additions and even made them more modern in language

This is a very neat and different kind of folktale than the ones that I have read before. It was all about what goes around comes around. I enjoyed the images and the story line of the book. In the end the spider got what he had coming to him because he had been deceiving all his friends for so long!
