Amelia B. BacktoSchool
For those who love Amelia Bedelia stories, this newer adventure was written by her nephew Herman Parish. Continuing in the tradition of original Amelia Bedelia books, this story is filled with figurative language and confusing expressions of speech that make the character so delightful. Amelia’s first day is one to enjoy.
It's Back to School We Go

Have you ever wondered what school is like in other countries? In It’s Back to School We Go! readers can learn about activities and customs from 11 different countries: Kenya, Japan, China, Peru, Canada, Kazakhstan, Australia, Germany, Russia, India, and the U.S. Written from a child’s perspective, you learn what the children wear, the subjects they study, and how they have fun. This multicultural book is great for comparing and contrasting activities.


Miss Mingo

Creating a community of learners is an important part of starting a new year. Miss Flamingo has an eclectic class, but she helps them realize something special about themselves. This story would be a great way to open up a conversation about what makes each of them unique and special. I could also see this becoming a great companion to a writing activity.
