This is my favorite series to read at home with my children, who range from kindergarten, first and fourth grade. Aaron Blabey‘s, The Bad Guys Guide to Being Good is the perfect book to introduce children to graphic novels. The font and illustrations are fun to read for all ages. This book is great for assisting monotone readers, as the font and frequent onomatopoeia help students visualize sounds according to the theme.

P is for Pterodactyl, by Raj Halder and Chris Carpenter, is a NF book filled with words that break the rules of the English Language. The “worst alphabet book” focuses on words with letters that defy basic consonant sounds. This is a great book to have in a classroom library because students can focus on vocabulary that may be deemed difficult. #ucflae3414fl19

YvetteE https://creativeeducator.tech4learning.com/2018/lessons/alphabet-book
This book can read aloud during engagement to recruit interest by optimizing relevance, value, and authenticity. ESOL students will benefit when taught technical vocabulary supporting key concepts. The included lesson plan goes beyond engagement.
