Book of the Month Blog Hop for October

I am linking up with Tammy @ 1...2...3... Teach With Me for her Book of the Month Blog Hop.
Come check out the Hop for some great read alouds for your class and join in to share some of your own.

Little Mummy isn't afraid of the usual scary Halloween sites but he IS scared of a wee little Mouse.   The rhythm & repetition in this book make it easy for my firsties to join along in the reading a few pages in.  The illustrations are wonderful.
If you liked Bats at the Beach, you will fall in love with Bats at the Library, too.  In this story, the bored bats find an open window to a library and go on quite the adventure.  Pay close attention to the illustrations.  I love the rhyming text and use this book for Round up the Rhymes Activities.

A Must Have for the month .... Halloween Is... by Gail Gibbons.  Halloween is  is a nonfiction text filled with information about the origin of the Holiday and how we celebrate it today.  I love to use Gail Gibbons books when students are learning about nonfiction text features and learning to write their own.
