My first pick is Stuck by Oliver Jeffers. This is a picture book for kids of all ages (including grown-ups)! This is a cute story about a boy whose kite gets stuck in a tree and his unique way of getting it "unstuck." Love this one!
I first heard this book when my co-operating teacher during student teaching was reading it aloud to her 4th graders. I read it aloud to my class for the first time and they loved it. This is the story of a young boy named Marty. Marty is really close to his Gramps who just moved to a nursing home. In this story, Marty deals with this big change in his life by writing letters to dead people. It gets really interesting when they start writing back!
