On this post you'll find my school library's:
1. Extremely popular Top 3 English books (We also have books in Spanish).
2. Books that made our kids laugh during the read alouds.
3. That one book with a 26-kid-long waiting list.
1. Top 3 English books
1. Don't Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus by Mo Willems
2. I Am Going by Mo Willems
3. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days by Jeff Kinney
Of course Mo Willems is gonna be top 3! I don't know how it is in other schools or even other countries but my students are OBSESSED! The Pigeon and Piggie & Elephant series are always a success, no matter what the book is about, the kids will check them out and they will check them out throughout their Primary Years.
The obsession with Diary of a Wimpy Kid begins around 3rd grade or maybe a high level reader from 2nd grade will check it out, but it mostly starts in 3rd grade. We just got 3 new copies odf Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul and it already has a waiting list!
2. READ aloud Books
3. That one book!
It is a fantastic book but we never dreamed how successful it was going to be! There are 26 students currently on the waiting list for one of the 8 copies we have and the minute the book is free is out of our hands and into our readers hands!
If you have no idea about this book, here's the promotional video for it.
