It’s time for the third week of my Jump into June book choices. If you haven’t checked out my previous posts, I am highlighting a book each day that goes along with a national celebration. (Amazon affiliate links included in this post.)
June 10 – Iced Tea Day
If you’re from the south like me, every day is iced tea day. But, of course, there’s a national day just for iced tea. Read about the historical side of tea with a book about the Boston Tea Party. I love that the American Girl has started creating books with real historical events. (My students loved their book on Rosa Parks.)
June 11 – National Corn on the Cob Day
Who doesn’t love some grilled corn on the cob in the summer? So good. There are some great kids’ books out there for corn (like The Popcorn Book.) I just couldn’t pass up this great informational book by Gail Gibbons. My students always love her books. They are so into them, not matter the topic.
June 12 – Red Rose Day
Red roses are the most iconic flower so, of course, they get their own day. A fun book to read for roses is “There Was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Rose.” Kids love the patterns and repetition in this book.
June 13 – National Sewing Machine Day
I don’t know about you and I have no clue how to sew so anyone who can sew is impressive in my book. Since it’s National Sewing Machine Day, read about the most famous seamstress around, Betsy Ross. Kids will like this take on the childhood of Betsy Ross.
June 14 – Flag Day
The American flag has an amazing history. Did you know that George Washington asked Betsy Ross (supposedly) to create the first flag so his soldiers would have something to fight for? The book “Red, White, and Blue: The Story of the American Flag” is a great book to teach all about the history of the flag and how it came to look the way that it does now.
June 15 – Global Wind Day
The purpose of Global Wind Day is to teach all about wind energy and the power of the wind. Read to learn how wind begins, how wind can impact the weather, and our energy. This book is an easy reader that even early readers can read independently.
June 16 – Fresh Veggies Day
This has been a healthy week with Corn on the Cob Day and Fresh Veggies Day. I chose another book by Gail Gibbons because her facts are so great.
