Can you offer any help!?  I'd really appreciate it!

Only 1 more away from a 100 follower giveaway!  Invite your friends to come join the fun!  LOL! :o)  


  1. I'm a big fan of Roald Dahl. His own life (biographies) are interesting too.

    I love Ed Emberley's stuff too!

    Cathy I.
    Mrs. I's Class

  2. What a great idea! I have done author studies Mo Willems and Jack Prelutsky. Another favorite series would be Flat Stanley.

  3. David Shannon of course! And Jim Gill... he has random books that won't tie together very well... but still amazing!

    (Did you see you hit 100? Yeah!) Also, The Clutter-Free Classroom has this as a linky party topic. I bet that list grows leaps and bounds!

    Empowering Kinders and Other Kids Too
    Empowering Little Learners!

  4. This is a great list! I can't think of anybody to add.

    I think I am your 100th follower! Congrats!


  5. I am so glad you posted this list. I recently found these authors: Doreen Cronin, Eric Litwin, Tedd Arnold, and Anna Dewdney. Oh wait and I almost forgot Laura Numeroff. How about those? :o) Love their books!

  6. The Elmer Books by David McKee
    Jamaica books by Juanita Havill and Anne Sibley O'Brien

    Teachers Cannot Live By Apples Alone

  7. I love little critter books! I am doing a monsters unit to study emotions and shapes. I will introduce mercer Mayer during this unit and be using the little critter books during writer's workshop.
