GREAT Books!

So I am totally one hundred percent obsessed with buying children's books. I always find a new one I want and that I NEED to have. I have found that ordering them from amazon is usually the cheapest. They sell their books way cheaper than Barnes and Nobel or any other local bookstore. I wanted to share some of the books I have recently bought to read at the beginning of the school year! They all have great messages and I am excited to create cute crafties for them or find some on pinterest, which I have found a few already!
This books has a great message and is a little bit of a surprise. It also has a really cute pledge in the back of it! It is more appropriate for grades 2 and above.
I love this book! It is about being yourself and being unique! The illustrations are great! It also would go great with a reading unit about courage!
I have already found some great activities and ideas to go along with this books on pinterest! Just type in the title and they will pull up. I can't wait to read this because I have a HUGE issue with tattling in my current class.
This one is just a classic!
We have a character education program so this book will be great when we teach "how to accept no."
This book is soo cute! I love to draw and paint so I had to add this book to my order. I plan on sharing it with our art teacher! I am off to watch all my juicy reality T.V. shows! I am off tomorrow so I plan on relaxing in peace! Glitter Words

Thanks for sharing these! I'm also obsessed with children's books :) I definitely want to check out Juice Box Bully.... it's sad how much of a problem bullying has become at my school.

I love character education books, thanks so much for sharing! :)
My kids have a horrible time with tattling too. I have a tattle jar with a form letter for them to write their worries to our principal and that's helped a lot!

OMG I am such a Children's Lit junkie too! LOL Honestly, after several years of textbook reading in my undergrad I kinda got (or rather stayed) away from books. However since studying for my masters in Elementary Ed I have rediscovered my love for books and I will never stray again :)
