Let's Talk About Books! Linky and Giveaway





What happens when an illustrator runs out of paint?  
This is the perfect book to teach kids about the role an illustrator plays in the story.

The three little pigs build their houses and about halfway through the story the illustrator runs out of paint and he has to come up with some creative ideas to solve the problem.







Could he just use green?


Disguise them as clowns?






The ending is TOO FUNNY!!!




This is the perfect story to read alone or to use it with a study of The Three Little Pigs.



This week I'm giving away a copy of this book AND My Three Little Pigs unit.





You can check it out by clicking on the cover.




To win all you have to do is leave a comment telling me the title of your favorite children's book.
I will choose a winner on Thursday evening.

  3. Wonderful book to spark lots of creativity. My favorite book from childhood was Georgie because it is the first book Mom let me buy with the record (yes, before cassette tapes you would get a 45). I still have the record and share it with my first graders each year.

    1. I remember records! With 45's I had to put the little plastic thing in the middle so it would play on the record player. Memories.... :)

  4. My favorite book was "What Do You Do With a Kangaroo." For one of my education classes in college I made my own version called, "What Do You Do With a Pig Named Lou." :-)

  5. That book is too cute! My first graders would love it! My favorite book is Flossie & the Fox {I actually wrote about it for this week's book talk :) } My mom gave me the book when I was in kindergarten. It's set in rural Tennessee, is written with a souther dialect, and is about a little girl who outsmarts a fox. I love it because the setting, language, and customs represented in the book remind me of home :)

  6. I love to read different versions of the 3 Little Pigs. My students really like The 3 Little Fish and the Big Bad Shark and The Three Little Tamales. My favorite book is Skippyjon Jones. I can't help laughing when I read it.

  7. My favorite children's book is called One by Kathryn Otoshi. It's about standing up to a bully, but none of the characters are people, animals, or things! It's extremely creative and presents bullying in a way that even the youngest readers can understand. She also has two other books called Zero and Beautiful Oops! Otoshi so making her way up my favorite author list!

  12. Love this book! It will tie in perfect with teaching our kiddos about the parts of a book and the jobs of the people who make the make(all part of our K assessment/report card). My favorite story(books) are Dick and Jane. I read them with my Grandma growing up. Now I have the books in my classroom of which my little K friends love reading from and take home to read to their families. Love how proud they are!!! Kim schneiderk@stillwater.k12.mn.us

  13. I love all the Todd Parr books. I love to use them with my preschoolers to show them what an illustrator does. His illustrations even inspire my reluctant students to give their hand a try at drawing. Heck I can’t draw myself but Todd makes me feel like I can! One of my favorites is Reading Makes You Feel Good. Great book to start off the school year.

  25. I love this weekly linky to learn about new books and get great ideas. Thanks for hosting. It's so hard to narrow down one book I love so I am going with a childhood favorite of mine, even though this will date me :) I loved 'Bread and Jam for Francis'. It was about a picky eater and how smart, but kind her mom was when dealing with Francis to eventually get her to try new foods. Still remember reading it like it was yesterday. :)

  26. You Should, You Should! By Ginny Tilby. This book is written by one of my first graders, who is now in her 20's. It is so fun to see the talent in a first grader and then watch them grow up and use their talents to do amazing things. This book has is full of fun, colorful amazing illustrations, it has a great message as well. It is a new book for this year and can be found at Barnes and Noble and Amazon. Check it out!

  36. Choose my favorite?? Just one?? :-) Seriously though, that's hard for me to do since I love books to the point of obsession!! :-) One of my very favorite books to read with my kinders would have to be 'Don't Fidget a Feather!' written by Erica Silverman and illustrated by S.D. Schindler. I absolutely love the unique illustrations that almost look scratched onto the page. I also love the message of friendship - and friendly rivalry - that the book contains. We use this story to talk about what it means to be a good friend, and the repetitive text makes it fun for my littles to read along with me! p.s. - Thanks so much for hosting this great linky!!

  37. Oh, my goodness! I would love to use this book to reinforce author and illustrator. I'm putting it on my wish list now. I love to read the Lorax for Earth Day.

  39. I don't know if I can choose a favorite, but my students' favorite this year was definitely "The Day the Crayons Quit" by Drew Daywalt. They collapsed into giggles at the "naked" peach crayon every single time and always asked me to read that page again after we finished the book! I just finished my first year and don't have a lot of books, so we read this one a LOT!

  40. I love the newer book Exclamation Mark. I got it with an order from Scholastic and my students fell in love with how silly it was. I loved how it reviewed for them when to use different types of punctuation!

  51. My favorite children's book...this is hard, I have so many that I love! Any book by Eric Carle or the Wood family is always a favorite!! If I have to pick just one I would have to say "And to Think that I saw it on Mulberry Street" by Dr. Seuss. I love the imagination of the little boy and I love having my kids think of what they might see on Main St. (the street our school is on)!

    ReplyDelete
  52. My favorite book is Charlotte's Web. As a child I checked it out 7 times in one school year! As a teacher I have read it 29 times to my students, once a year for my 29 years of teaching. I am hopefully teaching them the love of reading a favorite book over and over and over again.

  53. One of my favorites has got to be The Great Fuzz Frenzy by Janet Stevens. It's so funny and the prairie dogs are so cute!!

  54. Oh my I absolutely love children's books and picking is incredibly hard! I remember as an elementary school student having my mom and dad read my Strega Nona over and over so I would say that book. :) Now that I am a teacher, read aloud is my favorite part of the day!

  55. My favourite, and one I still make a point of reading each year, is Anne of Green Gables. Such a classic and a feel good book (in my opinion)!

  57. I look forward to this post every week! Hands down my kiddos favorite book series each year has been the "David" series by David Shannon! It's one of the first books they grab to "read" at the beginning of the year. And to be honest, the page that shows David running down the street without his underwear just throws them in a fit of giggles every time:) In fact, I guess I need to purchase them again for next year. As much use as they get, they dont last too long:) Thank you for the opportunity to win this book and unit! I'm putting it in my shopping cart just in case!

  58. It seems that the longer I teach, the more I am so much more attuned to illustrations in books that have the ability to hold a child's focus. That's why I love books you choose to read too! My book definitely fits that criteria too. Thanks for the link up!!!

  59. So, so cute! Love this cute story, The Three Little Pigs is such a classic in so many ways! I know it's a Christmas story but it makes me teary every time. Luckily my kids know I'm a weepy person, it's just so sweet! The Polar Express :)

  61. One of my favorite books is Elmer- by: David McKee. I love to read this book when we are learning E since his name starts with E and he is an elephant. But I also love this book for what the moral of the story is. Elmer always feels he is being laughed at by all the other elephants because he STANDS OUT with his patchwork, so he wants to be plain and ordinary. When he masks his patchwork and becomes like the others, he doesn't stand out. I love to read this to teach the children how each one of them are special, unique and stand out among the crowd. I like to remind them to be their own person and not conform to others!

  71. It's hard to pick a "favorite" when it comes to kid-lit, but ONE of my many favorites is "The Pumpkin Smasher" by Anita Bernard. It's a favorite read-aloud every year for my students (mostly because they have NEVER heard it before…and it's a great story!) and it brings a sense of nostalgia when I read it…the copy I own belonged to one of the people who inspired me to teach:)

  86. My favourite book is "My Mother is Weird" by Rachna Gilmore. I will hang onto that one forever. I found it when my kids were a little younger and it's a good reminder that no mom is perfect; nor do we need to be. The book has lots of humour and a message that moms need to hear. Perfect for reading at a school Mother's Day tea party, too!

  137. My class has so many favorites, it's hard to choose. Tops and Bottoms is one of them! I've enjoyed reading the comments posted and have so many on my list that I'd like to purchase. Thanks for all that you do for education - I've taught for over 30 years and Blogs and PINTEREST have made it so fun for both myself and my students!

  139. I just recently finished my first year of teaching, and the majority of the books in my classroom library are books that I inherited. With that being said, I haven't been able to really pick and choose good pieces of literature for my kindergarteners that I can use to teach concepts of prints as well as story elements. With that being said, not only do I really appreciate this linky party so that I am provided with great pieces of children's literature and ways to use it in my classroom, but I also appreciate this post about these adorable pigs. I would LOVE nothing more than to win this AND your Three Little Pigs pack and put them both to good use in my classroom my second year around.

  140. This is too cute!! I would LOVE to use this my first year with my first graders! My favorite book happens to be "The True Story of the Three Little Pigs", which would be grade to add to this unit!

  141. My students and I just love reading Mean Jean the Recess Queen, by Alexis O'Neill:)! We actually read it several times a year because the book hits so many concepts-bullying, patterns, inference, GATE icons (multiple perspectives, ethics). I had the pleasure of meeting her at a book fair and see taught the audience motions that went with the "chorus" of the story. This is truly a book to add to your classroom collection...and it will never get dusty:)!! It's my birthday today too, so CHEERS:)!

  142. I know this book is seasonal, but I think it was mine and my firsties favorite for the year...The Yuckiest, Stinkiest, Best Valentine Ever!

  143. Oh it is hard to pick one favorite. I will go with a picture book, and I will say a favorite here is "I Stink!" which is about a garbage truck, but it goes through the alphabet! We actually wore our original scholastic paper copy out! Thanks for the chance to win a book and one of your packets!

    I am going now to finish up my next book linky! This has been so fun already and very motivating. Between your 10 Things ... linky (in which I said I wanted to actually finish a book!) and this, I'm reading some long-shelved books! :)

  148. My favorite book at the moment is Mama How Does the Wind Start to Blow? It is written and illustrated by Jeanne Styczinski. She is a friend and fellow kindergarten teacher. This is her first book and it is a sweet, wonderful counting story illustrated by painting on newspaper. Very much Eric Carle / Lois Ehlert style. Hope you get to read it! Thanks for the chance to win your unit!

  149. Robert Munsch books! My fave is I HAVE TO GO! I do a lot of storytelling in my classroom and I've adapted this book and STEPHANIE'S PONYTAIL for storytelling pieces. I make these interactive pieces by letting the kids chime in on the repetitive parts such as , "No, no, no" from I HAVE TO GO and "It's my ponytail and I like it!" from STEPHANIE. I've used these books from Kdg thru 6th grade! All ages love the stories!! Especially in adapted storytelling form!!!

  187. Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey was a gift from my godmother when I was in Kindergarten, and it is still my absolute favorite to share with my second graders each and every spring. The charcoal sketches of the ducklings, especially when they learn to swim make me smile.

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful version of The Three Little Pigs! It will be a wonderful one to compare/contrast to The True Story of the Three Little Pigs and The Three Javelinas!

    What a great link-up as well!

    Gratefully,

  191. When I was a child my favorite children's book was Alexandar and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day. Now it probably changes montly/weekly since I'm a School Media Specialist, but my fall back when I need something to read good to last minute is often Corduroy or Dandelion by Don Freeman.

    ReplyDelete
  192. Almost impossible to choose only one. I just love books! One of my all time favorites is another book about pigs. It is titled Piggie Pie.
