Would love to have had a fun theme going for my list like "10 Books with Lunch" or "10 Books with Sneezes" (can you tell pollens are already in the air and I want a snack? :/). But the brain wouldn't focus long enough to create that. So ... you're just getting "Ms. O's Favorites that NEVER EVER fail in a read aloud. ;) They're not in any particular order. Check the hashtag on Twitter for more posts!
It's more than a little silly. But come on. A hippo who salsas and discos? What fun!
I will admit I'm a little tired of this one ... but the kids aren't. So I read it anyway and then they get so excited and I don't hate it anymore. Cause really. He does wear shoes that look a lot like Converse. And after recent events at school I'm having to repeat "Does Ms. O cry? Goodness, no. She just walks along singin' her song because it's ALL GOOD." So he can't be all bad.
Really I could add most of these but I'll just use one of my picks and choose this one. Usually tend to pick it to read aloud when I have a cold. Cause that's a lot, funny little germ carriers.
I like to read this one ... but the recording of the author doing it is so good sometimes I just play that.
If I could read this one in a British accent it would be even funnier. But the former (and I'll admit ... sometimes still) picky eater in me relates! And so do the kids.
