A Book to Choose?

Suggestions have started to come i for which book to choose for this year's global read aloud.
To be considered a book must:
  • Have global appeal
  • Be appropriate for kids as young as 2nd grade up to 8th grade
  • Provide opportunities for discussion, reflection, blogging etc.
  • Be appealing to both males and females
Some recent suggestions include:
  • Mr. Popper's Penguins
  • Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
  • Treasure Island
  • A Series of Unfortunate Events
  • The Sister's Grimm
  • The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
  • James and the Giant Peach
  • Cricket in Times Square
  • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory


So let us know your thoughts on books either in the comments or joining our Google Group.  I look forward to connecting with everyone again.

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo is always a class favorite.
