Wild ABout Books   2004


By Judy Sierra


Pictures by Marc Brown


Primary – could easily be used with older students


An entertaining book to start the school year, (as a read aloud) to get kids thinking about what and why  they read.  The  pictures are bright and colourful ,children will recognize Marc Brown‘s art from the popular Arthur series.  The text is rhyming , mentioning many classics children would connect to, in a fun way.  I would follow-up my read aloud by co-constructing the class reading history (Aimee Buckner, Notebook Connections)  I would follow that up by brainstorming a list of “Our favourite Books” or even getting students to pose for a photograph with their favourite book and get a class reading wall and reading community established right away.
