My Favorite Books

Mrs. Runde is having a linky party about favorite books! I could not resist! Here are some of my favorites:

Childhood Favorites:
My mom and I read together a lot when I was little.  Some of my favorites include Agatha's Feather bed, a Robert Munsch book called Purple, Green, and Yellow, and another one called Christina Katerina and the Time She Quit the Family.  My favorite book that I read by myself is Sharon Creech's Walk Two Moons.  Oh and I also love love Harry Potter and the Austin Family series by Madeline L'Engle.

Classroom Favorites: I love to read anything by Patricia Polacco to my students.  My all time favorite book to read aloud to my students The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo.  This is the sweetest story about a china rabbit who learns to love.  It is so beautifully written. This year we had an Edward Tulane day when we finished the book.  Check out my pictures from it and my related products on TpT.

Professional Favorites:
  I love teacher books! Some of my favorites include Setting Limits in the Classroom and of course The Book Whisperer.

Guilty Pleasures:
  I have a lot of these and some are quite embarrassing.  I love the Twilight books-I hate to admit it but I do! I also enjoy the Stephanie Plum series and James Patterson's Women's Murder Club. 


  1. Great choices! I loved Edward Tulane - both for myself and for my class. Every year the children get so involved in his journey! I'm going to have to read Women's Murder Club- haven't read any yet.

  2. Thanks for linking up today! Can you believe I've never read the Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane? But it is on my list of books to read my daughter next year.

  3. I love, love, love Walk Two Moons. The first time I ever read it was during for a read aloud and I cried right in front of my whole class.
