  • 12 Terrible Things by Marty Kelly
  • Is There Room in the Featherbed?
  • Wait! No Paint! by Bruce Whatley
  • The Monster at the End of this Book by Jon Stone
  • Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems
  • Don't Let the Pigeon Stay up Late
  • Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog
  • Elephant and Piggie books by Mo Willems
  • Monkey and Me by Emily Gravett
  • Where Does Pepper Come From? (nonfic) by Brigitte Raab
  • Looking Closely series (nonfic) by Frank Serafini [these include, the desert, the shore, the garden and the forest]
  • Chester by Melanie Watt [Melanie begs Chester the cat to write a good story with hilarious results]
  • Chester's Back by Melanie Watt [and he almost succeeds in taking over the story]
  • Somewhere in the Ocean Jennifer Ward [This book is beautifully illustrated and it teaches the children about different animals that live in the ocean. Each page has four lines with an alternating rhyme scheme as well as a hidden number. The children always crowd around to try and find the numbers that are hidden within each picture. They often get so excited that they do not listen to the story but if you tell them to listen to the words for clues that does help to calm them down. Another book by her is Over in the Garden. This one is a big hit as well.]
  • Tillie Lays an Egg by Terry Blonder Golson [where are the eggs?]
  • Look Books by Tana Hoban [a peephole provides a piece of the puzzle.. Can the children guess what the "whole" picture is?]
