3rd Grade and Older
Helen Keller: A photographic story of a life by Leslie Garrett
This is the true story of two role models: Helen Keller — a girl who is stricken with an illness that leaves her deaf and blind; and Annie Sullivan — Helen’s amazing teacher.
2nd Grade and Younger
We will divide these children into two equal groups, and each group will read and participate in activities for both books (30 minutes each).
Oh, Daddy by Bob Shea
If you don’t know the name “Bob Shea,” you need to. He has fairly exploded onto the picture book scene with hilarious books such as Dinosaur vs. Mommy and Unicorn Thinks He’s Pretty Great. Beneath the humor there’s always great storytelling. This book shows how daddies can be funny, silly, and — despite their many faults– lovable.
The Wednesday Surprise by Eve Bunting, illustrated by Donald Carrick
In this beautiful story, with equally beautiful art, a girl and her grandmother both serve as outstanding role models. But we can’t tell you how. That would ruin the surprise!
