2015 #pb10for10 (Picture Book 10 for 10)

For the past couple of years, I've been participating in Cathy & Mandy's #pb10for10 event to celebrate picture books that are must haves for my classroom to share with students. Plus, I love seeing what books everyone else has on their lists-I always find new books to check out. 

This past school year, inspired by Donalyn Miller's #bookaday for teachers during breaks, I decided to start a #classroombookaday daily picture book read aloud with my 7th & 8th graders. I introduced it on my teaching blog, and then presented on it at #nErDcampMI. I'm super excited that so many teachers are joining in committing to reading aloud a picture book to their students each day of the school year! 
My #pb10for10 list this year is ten of 
my new favorite picture books that I am most excited to share 
with my classes when we get back to school in September.

BEYOND THE POND by Joseph Kuefler
I finished reading the F&G of this at ALA at actually wished I was still in school to read to kids.

MARILYN'S MONSTER by Michelle Knudsen, ill. Matt Phelan
Thank you, Franki, for introducing this book to me! Another one I was wishing I had middle schoolers around to read it to right away. Pair with Beekle.

WILD ABOUT US by Karen Beaumont, ill. Janet Stevens
I think this one will be my first day of school read aloud this year to talk about being ourselves and being accepting of others' differences and why it makes them special.

THE BEAR ATE YOUR SANDWICH by Julia Sarcone-Roach
If they don't understand unreliable narrator after this...

FLOAT by Daniel Miyares
Loved PARDON ME last year, & Miyares' new wordless book is oh, so lovely!

THIS IS SADIE by Sara O'Leary
Some students might need this story.

I'M TRYING TO LOVE SPIDERS by Bethany Barton
A great example of fun voice in informational writing + it's hilarious!

THE DAY THE CRAYONS CAME HOME by Drew Daywalt, ill. Oliver Jeffers
My students love the crayons, and I so loved this new one!

NINJA BUNNY by Jennifer Gray Olson
Last year's NINJA! by Aree Chung made my students' top 10, so this will be a hit.

I adore the look of this book & am eager to discuss the grass isn't always greener theme with my students.

And a bonus book..
because I already read it to my students last year, but it's a new favorite (for my students and me), so I want to make sure people know about it!
TO THE SEA by Cale Atkinson

  4. Love your choice for how to narrow down your 10. I too really loved Marilyn's Monster and Spiders. Cannot wait to get my hands on the new Crayons book either! My #pb10for10 is about PB featuring diverse characters.

    1. Thanks! It was tough - there are so many amazing picture books out, and I've been reading so many of them.

  5. I wish my granddaughter entering seventh grade was in your class. What lucky students to have a book a day! These are great, I've jotted down several titles to look for. I am patiently (not really) for my Crayons book.

  6. So far this has been my most expensive blog visit! I loaded up my Amazon cart with titles from your list! I read Marilyn's Monster and Spiders at the bookstore, loved both, just decided I needed to purchase because hey, I need new books to read to my students, right?

  7. Lots of great titles you will be sharing. I think I could happily read The Bear Ate Your Sandwich aloud once a week! Such a great title to share. Also love seeing Sadie here :-) I got a chance to have a sneak peek at the new Crayons title! WOW - I think I like it more than the first one

  8. I knew this stop would be expensive. I'm not even going to borrow these first. If they make your list, then I know I just need to own them.

    Thanks, friend!

    1. Thanks! I'm looking forward to sharing that one with them for sure. I imagine it could be a bit Hat Back like.

  10. I have To the Sea from the library after talking with you at NerdcampMI - can't wait to read it! I've seen This is Sadie and Marilyn's Monster on a couple other lists. I've read FLOAT (loved it), but none of the others. I'm going to put them on my priority list to read before school starts next week!

  11. Thank you for sharing a WONDERful list, Jillian! I can't wait to get my hands on many of these titles for my second graders.

  12. Well...I'm going to keep my eyes out for these!

  13. I want to read aloud more to the middle schoolers at my K-8 school. Thanks for all of these great suggestions.
