I’m obsessed with picture books. Seriously can’t. get. enough. of. them. They provide an effortless way of building vocabulary. You can find some amazing words in some of the simplest of books. Words seen on standardized tests, even the SATs, are in picture books-no joke. Do not let these little gems collect dust on bookshelves. Even after the littles have moved on to those great chapter books-KEEP READING THE PICTURE BOOKS!
Vocabulary words: flow, plopped, corridor, rhombus, drifted, belong, confidence, pride.
Book 2: First Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg is a great book for anyone nervous about the first day of school…which is everyone, right?
