What would the perfect school look like? Jack, the main character in IF I BUILT A SCHOOL, has plenty of ideas and the kids love them! Imagine your school and Disney's Tomorrowland had a baby. Throw in a waterpark and you're there! 😂 This is one of our favorite read-alouds for the first week back to school. It's clever and creative and is a natural invitation for kids to imagine what kind of school they would design! Looking for some fresh activities for the new school year? See more here...

We love these fun activities for Wemberly Worried. Honestly, we love all of Kevin Henkes' relatable characters... Lilly, Owen, Chrysanthemum, Julius, and, of course, Wemberly. Most kids can find themselves in at least one of his picture books, if not more. Making your own worry dolls is a fun way to follow up the read-aloud, but traditional worry dolls are small and a little challenging for tiny hands to make. We love this chunkier version that uses pipe cleaners and pony beads. Check it out!

Oh, sweet Chrysanthemum... she loved her name until others started teasing her about how long it is. After that, she thought it was dreadful. This picture book by Kevin Henkes has long been a back to school favorite, but it's also great for developing vocabulary and deepening comprehension skills, especially when studying character traits and motives. The themes are so relatable... the kids love it. Come see how we use this sweet story on the first day of school and at other times of the year.

Balloons Over Broadway is one of my favorite picture books to read during the Thanksgiving season. It tells the story of Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and how it has evolved over time. There are so many fun activities that can follow the reading of this story, but one of my favorites is challenging kids to design and create festive balloons for our own holiday parade! It's a natural S.T.E.A.M. activity inspired by the text and the result is a show-stopper the kids won't forget! Read more...
