World Read Aloud Day
World Read Aloud Day is coming up the first week of March. There is a challenge out there right now to write about your favorite book to read aloud. I really enjoy reading The Adventures of Beekle the unimaginary friend. The drawings and story are simple. The perfect ingredients for a Caldecott Award winning book. Friendship is the theme and kids get it from the beginning when Beekle waits and waits and he is never picked to the day Alice becomes his friend. I love seeing students connect to with this book. It's a special book kids can relate to situations in their lives. Students also love that Beekle looks like Disney's Big Hero 6.
