Back to School Books

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by. This is my last week of summer vacation. As much as I love summer, I love the beginning of school too. Meeting a new group of kids, decorating the classroom, setting expectations, and all that jazz is so exciting. 

This year, I decided to look for some new books to read at the beginning of the school year. I have some great ones but I am really looking forward to new books. I'm a bit of a book addict so it's an exciting day when I have new books. 

I've ordered a few books off Amazon and found some new ones at Barnes and Noble. As much as I love Amazon, there's nothing quite like going into a bookstore. I've included Amazon links if you click on any of the images of the books to make them easier for you to find.

In this book, the students share something that they do best. This will be great to share about what makes us special.

This book is in the same style as "Who Will Carve the Turkey this Year?" Kids will find it funny as to how to girl gets to school with animals.

I love the Pout-Pout Fish! This is a really cute book.

The kids are going to love this book. The illustrations are funny and so is the text. Personally, I love the font they chose for the book. I think this one is going to be one of my new favorites.

This book is about a surprising new friendship. Very cute story!

This is a great book for those students who may be talented in different areas besides knowing all the answers. I think this book will be a great confidence booster and also lead into a discussion of how each person is smart in different ways.

This book would be great for the first day. Murphy is talking about how nervous he is about school. This book has very little text and relies on the cute illustrations.

These books are by the same author. These are just fun reads that the kids will enjoy.

The kids are going to love this book. It kinda reminds me of "The Black Lagoon" but so cute.

I haven't received this one yet from Amazon but I just couldn't resist the cover.


  1. Thanks for the great book recommendations! Just added a bunch to my excited!

  2. What a fun list! Thank you for including The Pout-Pout Fish Goes To School. If you'd like some Pout-Pout Fish bookmarks for your students, I'd be glad to send you some. They go along with the book. You can see what they look like over at my blog:

    Happy Reading to you and your students!

    Best Fishes,
