Diary of a Worm By Doreen Cronin
  • From Amazon.com
  • This book is good for all ages. This is a very
    funny book that many kids and adults will enjoy.
    Diary of a Worm is about a worm and his life and
    some things that happen in his life. He has a
    friend that is a spider that adds a great touch
    to the book. The illustrations are also very
    bright and colorful and explain the book with out
    even needing words. This book is very enjoyable
    and is good for reading when ever you feel like

Diary of a Worm Activity
  • Read the book to the students.
  • List different facts the students learned about
    worms from reading the book to them.
  • Ask the students to show you how a worm moves.
  • Have the students draw a picture what their day
    as a worm would look like.
  • After they draw their picture have them measure
    the worm they drew.
  • Language Arts-1.2.3 -Analysis of Grade-Level
    Appropriate Nonfiction and Informational
    Text Respond to who, what, when, where, why, and
    how questions and recognize the main idea of what
    is read.

    having straight edges in inches, centimeters, or
    nonstandard units.

Diary of a Spider By Doreen Cronin
  • From Amazon.com
  • Move over, Charlotte's Web! There's another
    wonderful spider tale out, and it's terrifically
    imaginative. If people are scared of spiders,
    what are spiders scared of? "People with big
    feet," claims the young spider whose diary
    comprises this tale. The book offers a unique
    perspective - a spider on the wall, you might say
    - on an arachnid's life. The secret to a long and
    happy spider's life? Never fall asleep in a shoe.
    Which is a great reminder for young readers to
    check their shoes before putting them on. The
    author nicely mixes facts - spiders are not
    insects, and their existence keeps troublesome
    insect populations at bay - with fantasy as she
    gives her spiders some very human, and very
    funny, characteristics "We tried the seesaw. It
    didn't work." The little spider has to do a lot
    of things his human counterparts do, like safety
    drills at school and homework. And he has two
    improbable best friends who would normally be
    dinner - Fly and Worm - much to the chagrin of
    his own parents and the horror of his friends'
    families. This is a welcome addition to the
    author's "diary" series, in which she teams up
    with the inventive and award-winning illustrator
    Harry Bliss.

Diary of a Spider Activity
  • Read the book to your students, stopping
    periodically to ask what they think will happen
  • Ask them different questions about spiders. (ex.
    How many legs does a spider have?)
  • If possible the students on a spider web hunt.
    Give them magnifying glasses so they can really
    see the webs. (Show them different samples.)
  • If used near Halloween, have them create spiders
    and spider webs to decorate your room with.
  • Sing Itsy, Bitsy, Spider afterwards.
  • Language-1.3.3 -Confirm predictions about what
    will happen next in a story.
  • Science-1.2.5 -Demonstrate that magnifiers help
    people see things they could not see without

Diary of a Fly By Doreen Cronin
  • From Amazon.com
  • Fly is friends with Worm and Spider, and as with
    the other books, all three are often seen
    together. Fly is learning how to "be a fly", with
    some ups and downs along the way (She isn't so
    thrilled with the idea of the food chain...). She
    also wants to be a superhero, though she is told
    that she is not cut out for the job. The
    illustrations are as superb as the other books,
    and there are several scientific facts that sneak
    in to the story. Keen observers will have fun
    picking out all the details in the artwork! A
    must-read, and a welcome addition to any
    children's library!

Diary of a Fly Activity
  • Read the story aloud to the students.
  • Have the students discuss how the book was
    similar and different to the two previous ones.
  • Ask the students what they would do if they were
    a fly.
  • Have the students pick another creature to
    research and write a diary of.
  • Get into a circle and have the students share
    their different journals.
  • Language-1.5.2 -Write brief expository
    (informational) descriptions of a real object,
    person, place, or event, using sensory details.
  • Science-1.2.7 -Write brief informational
    descriptions of a real object, person, place, or
    event using information from observations.

Click, Clack, Moo Cows that Type By Doreen
  • From Amazon.com
  • CLICK, CLACK, MOO COWS THAT TYPE is outstanding.
    Doreen Cronin's snappy and punchy writing makes
    for a great read aloud! The surprise ending is
    crafty too! As a classroom resource, students can
    study onomatopoeia, letter writing and surprise
    endings. Teachers! Have your students take on the
    voice of another farm or zoo animal and write a
    letter demanding some creative luxury too! Betsy
    Lewin's pictures work well with the text. She
    even provides an artist's note about how she
    accomplished the effects in the book! All around,
    a unique and creative picture book!

Click, Clack, Moo Cows that Type Activity
  • Show students the cover of the book, ask them
    what animals are on the cover and see if they can
    tell you what the type writer is. Who is the
    Author and Illustrator?
  • Read the story aloud to the children.
  • Ask them if they have pets and if they do what do
    they think their pets would ask them for if they
  • Have them write a letter to their family for
    something they would like similar to the one the
    cows wrote. (ex. a TV in their room)
  • Language-1.2.1 -Structural Features of
    Informational Materials Identify the title,
    author, illustrator, and table of contents of a
    reading selection.
  • Science-1.2.7 -Write brief informational
    descriptions of a real object, person, place, or
    event using information from observations.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar By Eric Carle
  • From Amazon.com
  • Another great story from Carle. His
    illustrations are always fantastic, but his
    stories can be erratic. This on is a dead-on hit.
    It is the brief story of a caterpillar's feeding
    frenzy before he makes his metamorphosis into a
    butterfly. The book introduces children to the
    days of the week, the names of fruits, and
    numbers as the caterpillar eats through different
    foods each day --two pears on Tuesday, three
    plums on Wednesday, etc.-- until he finally
    weaves his cocoon and emerges as a beautiful
    butterfly. This story is a hit every time.
    Carle's bright colors and clever die-cut artwork
    never cease to entertain even the youngest child,
    and there is surely nothing in nature closer to
    magic than the emergence of a butterfly. This is
    a beautiful and fun book that will enthrall any

A Very Hungry Caterpillar Activity
  • Begin by reading the story to the students.
  • Ask them if they can name the food the
    caterpillar ate throughout the story.
  • Discuss the life cycle of butterfly with the

Is a Worry Worrying You? By Ferida Wolff
  • From Amazon.com
  • Is A Worry Worrying You? is a picture book for
    children that combines whimsical artwork with
    honest and practical advice for dealing with
    worries - from everyday worries about bullies and
    the first day of school to not-so-common worries
    such as a rhino wandering the neighborhood! A
    "Worry" is depicted as a big blue monster with no
    manners, that stays like an uninvited guest - but
    only as long as one lets it. Is A Worry Worrying
    You? shows young people means of dealing with
    worries, from confronting it directly or working
    on whatever is worrying one, to focusing on happy
    thoughts, engaging in activities like playing
    with cards or baking a cake, or talking with
    friends. Highly recommended.

Is a Worry Worrying You Activity
  • Ask the students if they know what a worry is.
  • Then read the book to them.
  • Ask the students to discuss some of their
    worries, start out by sharing some of your own
  • Have the students write down or draw a picture of
    some of the things that are worrying them.
    Create a Worry Box for the students to place
    their worries in and send away to get rid of
    them. After all the worries in the box have the
    class count the total number together.
  • Language-1.7.8 -Relate an important life event or
    personal experience in a simple sequence.
  • Science-1.2.1 -Use whole numbers, up to 100, in
    counting, identifying, measuring, and describing
    objects and experiences.

Tacky and the Winter Games By Helen Lester
  • From Amazon.com
  • The story opens up thematically and pictorially
    with the 2-page spread describing the Opening
    Ceremonies. Teams of other penguins come from the
    "Highlands," the "Lowlands," the "Fun Lands," and
    Tacky's own "Nice Icy Land." They all march with
    dignity--except for Tacky who falls on his head
    while carrying the 'Nice Icy' pennant. However,
    this episode gives observant readers some insight
    into his character Although Tacky falls down, he
    manages to hold the flag aloft with his feet.
    Could there be something more to him than his
    clownishly lazy behavior suggests? Well, sort
    of. His team wins the NO-bobsled race but is
    disqualified because they use Tacky as a bobsled.
    Penguin ski-jumping, as we all know, uses frozen
    fish for skis Tacky's fish skis thaw when he
    chills (so to speak) by a pot-bellied stove
    before the race, and floppy fish make for funny
    aerodynamics. Finally, there's a relay race. The
    first four members of Team Nice Icy Land pass the
    baton neatly to each other, but when it's passed
    to the last skater, Tacky, he eats it! "Ate it?
    Ate it. Well, it looked like a hot dog." In
    frustration, his teammates chase him, and Tacky,
    thinking it's a game of tag "skated faster. And
    faster. And faster and faster and barreled across
    the finish line in record time." However, will a
    strict judge (wearing a button that says, "I
    rule") award them first place when the baton has
    disappeared? I'll only reveal that the resolution
    involves X-rays and that the four other penguins
    give Tacky a big hug. Lester concludes, "Tacky
    was an odd bird, but a nice bird to have around."

Tacky and the Winter Games Activity
  • Start out by discussing the Winter Olympics. Use
    pictures or video clips to spark interest.
  • Ask what types of sports they have in the Winter
  • Read the book to the students.
  • Have the students work together in groups to
    create their own story of the Winter Olympics.

No, David! By David Shannon
  • From Amazon.com
  • The book No, David! is the perfect book for any
    adult to share with a child. The illustrations of
    the devilishly cute David make both children and
    adults laugh at his antics while at the same time
    feeling sorry for him and the trouble he finds.
    David seems oblivious to all the actions that
    elicit the responses "No, David!" "No, No, No!"
    "Come back here David!" and "Settle down!" The
    illustrations of David walking across the rug
    covered in mud, overflowing the bathtub, jumping
    up and down on his bed dressed as a cowboy, and
    watching TV while every toy he owns is spread all
    over the floor make all children laugh with the
    understanding that they've been there before.
    What child hasn't been so deeply engrossed in an
    activity only to be jolted out of it by an adult
    pointing out the "mess" they have made? Children
    closely follow the story, even though the words
    may be few, the pictures tell the whole story.
    The bright and funny illustrations tell the story
    of David's mischief. The illustrations become
    hilarious when David is corrected for picking his
    nose and for running down the street without
    clothes. Children revel in the delight of knowing
    what he's doing wrong and understanding how it
    feels. The book is wonderful for adults too it
    is refreshing to remember the simple joy of
    childhood imagination. No matter what David does
    throughout this day, he needs cleaning up,
    reprimanding and constant supervision. David
    seems to do all this with the innocence of
    childhood, he doesn't realize that his 'fun'
    creates a huge mess. The end of the book
    satisfies all readers, child and adult. David is
    in 'time out' for his latest mischief when his
    mother says, "Davey, come here," and reminds him
    that "Yes Davey, I love you". The simple text and
    the detailed illustrations make the reader feel
    that all is better, and David is forgiven for his
    mis-adventures. This is a wonderful book to share
    with children, they respond with lots of prior
    knowledge, lots of elaboration, and lots of love
    for this devilish little boy all adults and
    children can relate too. The author has written
    another book about David going to school, I
    wonder what trouble he'll find next.....

No, David! Activity
  • Have the students list things their families have
    told them No! for doing.
  • Read the story to them.
  • Ask the students how Davids mother felt about
    him even though she got onto him a lot.
  • Ask the students to think some science activities
    they may do at home that their parents would say
    no too. Have them write a short paragraph
    explaining things their parents would not allow.

A Bad Case of the Stripes By David Shannon
  • From Amazon.com
  • Camilla loves lima beans, but won't eat them
    because no other children like them. One day she
    wakes up with bright stripes across her face.
    From then on she turns into anything she eats or
    talks about. She then learns to deal with being
    different and made fun of by her classmates,
    until a old lady comes and gives her lima beans
    to eat. When she returns to normal Camilla
    decides that she doesn't care what anyone thinks
    and eats all the lima beans she wants. The cover
    design really sets this book off. The colorful
    stripes and big words attract children to read
    this story. The author gives a unique story to
    help children understand that different is not
    bad. The characters are very stereotypical in a
    funny way. For example when talking with the
    doctors, "Then the specialist went to work on
    Camilla. They squeezed and jabbed, tapped and
    tested." The detail and description in this story
    is excellent and the illustrations along with the
    character development go together to make a
    hilarious yet "deep" story plot. This book is
    written for transitional and fluent readers, but
    children of all ages would enjoy this story. This
    story could be used when discussing differences
    and doing what is right. Teachers could use it
    when working on writing with detail.

A Bad Case of the Stripes Activity
  • Use at the beginning of the school year and
    discuss what the students worries are.
  • Read the students the story.
  • Ask them questions to think about from the book.
    (ex. Why did Camilla not want to tell anyone she
    liked lima beans?)
  • Have them compare the different items discussed
    throughout the book.
  • The students should get to know each other, have
    them create a picture or story I have a bad case
    of the (ex. If someone likes cooking, theirs
    would be I have a bad case cooking.
  • Language-1.2.3 -Analysis of Grade-Level
    Appropriate Nonfiction and Informational
    Text Respond to who, what, when, where, why, and
    how questions and recognize the main idea of what
    is read.
  • Science-1.2.6 -Describe and compare objects in
    terms of number, shape, texture, size, weight,
    color, and motion.

Olivia By Ian Falconer
  • From Amazon.com
  • As the first page states..."This is Olivia. She
    is good at lots of things." And she is. Good at
    wearing people out, scaring her brother, combing
    her ears, getting dressed, building sand castles,
    painting...everything but napping. She's a
    precocious, feisty, imaginative, wonderful little
    pig. Ian Falconer has captured the essence of a
    pre-schooler in his first children's book. His
    short, simple text is complimented by his
    expressive black and white illustrations, with
    just a touch of bright red to highlight the right
    parts. This is a book your youngsters will want
    to read again and again, as they see a bit of
    themselves in Olivia. A must for all home
    libraries, Olivia is sure to become a classic.

Olivia Activity
  • Read the book to the students.
  • Discuss how Olivia can be anything she wants to
    be because of her imagination and creativity.
  • List some of the things that she could be when
    she goes up.
