"Must Have Picture Books" Linky Party

I am trying something for the first time... I am trying to link up with The Teacher Wife to share some of my favorite picture books for school. First I go! :)
I love books and read alouds! Here are some of my "Back to School" favorites...

This is a fun rhyming book that gives the students a preview of what Kindergarten will be like. The kids always think it is funny too when they see that the students in the book are having fun and excited about school and the mommies and daddies are the ones boo hooing because they miss their children!

This book helps to address any fears a student might have about Kindergarten in a fun way! Many students can make text to self connections when listening to this story!

This is a fun rhyme and rhythm book that is entertaining for students to see dinosaurs at school!

I love Gilbert! :)

This is a really cute book. Boris the Bear is new at school and all the other animals are scared of him because of the way he looks. It shows Boris' struggles and has a solution at the end...all the animals love Boris because he is like a big Teddy Bear!
