Picture Book Linky Party

Lindsey at The Teacher Wife is having a fun linky party!


.  Omigosh..I'm addicted to children's books so I'm LOVING this linky!  I have several new ones on my list just from everyone's posts.  

Here are mine:

1. You Will Be My Friend!  I found this book last year and it is so AWESOME!  It's about a bear named Lucy who wakes up one day and decides she's going to go find a new friend.  She has some trouble with this and goes through just about every emotion in speech bubble form.  It cracks me up to read it!


2.  This is a sweet story about a zookeeper who takes care of and plays with his animal friends everyday.  One day he gets sick and they come take care of him.  It's just a precious story about what true friendship is.

3. Okay, I'll admit it.  I love funny books.  This one is hilarious!  It's about a chick who knows the story so well that she keeps interrupting her dad.  It teaches about manners, but I love it because it's so fun to read.


4. This is a story about a possum named Epossumondas.  He's his mama and auntie's sweet little patootie but he's not very smart.  This is a Southern story and you have to read it with your best "hick" accent.  I'm from Tennessee so I have no trouble with this.  I do his voice very sloowly and southern, and the kids L-O-V-E it.  I bet I read this book 20 times this past year.  
They begged for it.  

I could go on forever, but those were my faves from last school year.  I can't wait to see everyone else's favorites.  Go link up with Lindsey!

  3. I'm trying to stop myself from ordering the bear with a pink tutu cause we're not allowed to have stuffed animals at school and seriously, I am a grownup who doesn't even like pink so why would I have it at home? :/ But it's hard!
    The last two years we've made Interrupting Chicken door hangers with second grade (I'm the school librarian) and upcycled manila folders to kick off summer reading. I think I got the pdf from the publisher's website? Anyway. One side says "Interrupt me!" if maybe they want to play. And the other side says "I"m reading!" if it's good reading time! Both sides have the chicken. :]

  14. Hi, you have some great suggestions. Have to buy "you will be my friend." You would love "Hunter's Best Friend at School" by Laura Elliot. Good to read at the beginning of the year.

    I have chosen you to receive an award!

    Come on over and pick it up!

  18. Hi Crystal,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! This has been a great linky party, I've discovered lots of books I need to check out! I love A Sick Day for Amos McGee and although I've wanted to check out Interrupting Chicken and You Will Be My Friend for awhile I have yet to do so. This just gives me more incentive to go pick them up!


    Love to Learn

  19. Epossumondas is one of my favorites, too! I heard Coleen Salley read it at a Reading Recovery Conference. OMG! Every year I try to imitate her southern accent when I read it!

    1. I completely understand! I had a family buy me the new Splat book (in hardback!!) at the last book fair. It wasn't even on my wishlist. The child just knew I loved Splat so much. I cried!
