So I'm not sure if you already have any, but Shel Silverstein is lots of fun. We don't have any so I added it to my list too! I've got a 1 and 3 yr old who are book obsessed, poetry is so much fun to read out loud.

Thanks for the contest!

So much awesome here!

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B007KFXIDE/ref=aw_ls__5?colid=7CWYXJ1UUUS5&coliid=I470A7VTO4OVI&vs=1 is something I need. I currently have no expandable storage for my phone so I have to be real careful with pics and videos of my kiddos.

For the under $20, would love this to read to my boys. My husband and I both loved this book as kids http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/0060572345/ref=aw_ls__10?colid=1XBDHCB7ELEOA&coliid=I2D46YYD2FJCA0


You both look extremely lovely today by the by :)

ETA: Just realized the double post, whoops! All clear now :)

10:38 is my guess.

Roll Tide Baby!

Shell Silversteina Where the Sidewalk Ends is CLASSIC.

Edit: I left out a digit. Guessing ten thirty-eight. Original post neglected the zero in ten.

I had Richard Scarry's Best Storybook Ever as a child and bought it for my children, too! It's got little golden books in it, but also tons of fun lists and things like that. Love it! I also got Where the Sidewalk Ends, no matter their age, the poems are fun to hear, pleasing to the ear!

I've heard good things about the new Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls collection! You could also try some anthologies of stories from different cultures around the world (anansi the spider, tales from ancient china, etc) or greek and roman mythology. The website A Mighty Girl has all kinds of great recommendations. You might also think about some books of poems like A Pizza the Size of the Sun or Where the Sidewalk Ends.

edit: And The Stinky Cheese Man is always good one if you want something silly!

Devil in the White City- By Erik Larson A fantastic nonfiction that reads like fiction.

Anything by HP Lovecraft for a dose of Horror. I think the story, "Horror at Red Hook" and "Lurker in Darkness" have more of an adventurer GM theme to them than others. Fair bit of warning, when reading his stuff have a dictonary pulled up on your phone. Since it's older material there are a lot of anitquated words in there. Don't worry about learning every new word for future reference. Your brain will pick a couple.
My favorite collection.

I have used some history books about WWI and WWII to make campigns for Iron Kingdoms.

I'm a fan of varied mediums, if you haven't done graphic novels before, maybe look into one that could strike your fancy. Hellboy, Batman-The Long Halloween, most titles by Allen Moore, Superman-Red Son.

Also sneak some poetry in there. Even light stuff like Shel Silverstein was helpful to me. It helps you think of how to use words in new ways.

I devoured the Magic Treehouse series when I was younger. I thought it was so great that they went to all these cool places (and they were very easy to read chapter books, so I flew through them!) :)

Edit: I ran a Reading Buddies program at the local library and a couple of our younger readers really liked them because the writing style is simple, but interesting. There are new words, but nothing terribly difficult and since the main characters are the same throughout, it's easy to follow :)

In terms of other books, I thought all of these were great:

  1. Dr Seuss
  2. Shel Silverstein
  3. Alexander
  4. Amelia Bedelia
  5. Frog and Toad
  6. Henry and Mudge
  7. Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus

    Those were all pretty popular with my kids (and with me)! :)

Where the Sidewalk Ends was one of my favorite books as a kid. I wish I still had it, I've never been able to find it for my kids. My mom sold my copy on a yard sale once when I was a teenager because I'd apparently outgrown it :( It's on my kids' Book Wishes wishlist!

Some of my kids' favorites are Frog and Toad, Clifford the Big Red Dog and anything by Dr. Suess :)

In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson.

1.) For this I choose a pencil box because when I was in grade school I collected pencil shavings mostly from colored pencils to do a craft project idea I had with them. Sad ending though, I never did get around to making the craft.

2.) I know this notebook would make me insanely jealous. I wasn't much of a note taker however so it would end up mostly filled with doodles :P

3.) I think any teacher would smile if they saw one of their students wearing this shirt

4.) YAY! Art class! I think with this I will be fully prepared!

5.) In my state (Washington) it rains a lot during the school year, so these fashionable rain boots are a must have for splashing around in the puddles!

6.) If I could pick my school's mascot, it would definitely be the blobfish because I don't think anybody else has him as a mascot yet. And of course because he's so cute!

7.) You would think a box of nerds candy this big should last the whole school year, but it's kids we're talking about here, come on.

8.) I have always been in love with the Shel Silverstein books such as Where The Sidewalk Ends. Also they rhyme and have silly drawings!

9.) There is no way to beat this amazing spectacular backpack any kid wearing this would be the most popular kid in school!

10.) Between homework and dinner, my favorite activity would be playing the Wii U with friends or family. It's a fun video game system that can also keep you up and active!

Bonus #1 - School newspaper?

I love this contest. I absolutely love reading with my children. They are 7 and 4 and they are such little bookworms! Reading with children is one of the most important things you can do as a parent (or an educator)!

That being said, I have a ton of books I want to recommend to you. My kids favorites thus far have been:

  • Anything by Shel Silverstein, particularly The Giving Tree which is an actual story, or Where The Sidewalk Ends which is a collection of child-friendly poems that are sweet, silly, funny, cute, etc.

  • Anything by Mo Willems, particularly the Pigeon and Duckling series. Our favorite was The Duckling Gets A Cookie!?. It's hilarious and adorable, and very fun to read! I like to put on voices for the duckling and the pigeon. The kids get a kick out of it!

  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar. This one was my daughter's favorite from the time she was 2 til she was 4! She has it memorized now.

  • Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Eric Carle (author of Hungry Caterpillar as well).

  • Love You Forever is a wonderful bedtime story.

  • Madeline is a classic, and for a good reason! :)

    I have lots more but I'd be here all day if I don't stop myself now.

    If I win, I would love the second book in the Amulet series for my 7 year old. She is really into graphic novels right now and I just bought her the first one the other day, and she has already finished it. She really wants the second one! :)

    Green eggs and ham.

    Edit: I'm going to stick around and get suggestions for my own kids, as well :P This is such a great contest!

Damn, imagine having someone spell stuff out for you in explicit detail and you still walk away thinking that. But it's okay champ, I know reading's hard. Here's one of my favorite books growing up. It's short poems so it should be a good starter. After that I'd recommend stuff like The Magic Treehouse series, really small and easy to digest with a little mystery if I remember right. After that you can probably move on to the Harry Potter series and some non-fiction books, but make sure you wait until you're ready. It'll take a bit but I believe in you :\^)
