I had so many favorites, I organized them into three categories.
Books that are great for the first week of school!
Classic Kindergarten Favorites!
Books with Awesome Characters (that are in multiple books)!
The main theme throughout the book is choosing intentional read alouds based on the outcomes teachers want students to learn and the potential each book holds. What is most striking about the book is the fact that Laminak doesn’t just explain why read alouds are important, he teaches how to read aloud stories by calling attention to specific language which impacts the craft and structure of both informational and literature texts.
