Weekend Warriors- February Favorite Books

Welcome to Weekend Warriors my friends!!
This month is all about books!
And books make up a lot of this job, don't they?
Today I bring to you...
My Top Five Favorite Children's Books!

{number one}
The Lorax by Dr. Seuss
I'm sure this isn't a "new" book for many of you!
The story is so very sweet and sentimental!
Wasn't Dr. Seuss so ahead of his time? 

{number two}
everything Elephant Piggie by Mo Willems
The Elephant and Piggie series are my absolute favorites!
We had tons of fun early in the year with these cuties!
Check out this post to grab a freebie 
to make these adorable puppets. 

{number three}
Otis by Loren Long
Otis by Loren Long is the sweetest story of a tractor and a calf!
Who knew a tractor and a calf could bring a tear to my eye every time I read it.
I love it so much I made a product for it!
Check it out by clicking the cover!

{number four}
The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
I love The Giving Tree so much that
 my husband and I named his landscaping company after it. 
Yet another book that brings a tear to my eye every time!

{number five}
Yes Day by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

Yes Day is an awesome book for your primary students!
It's all about a day where the little boy's parents say YES to everything!
Can you imagine this as a kid? It would be amazing!
I made a little product about Yes Day way back when.
Click the cover to grab.
I hope you'll enjoy a few of these books with your students!!
