Children’s Books

“Can I Be Your Dog?” by Troy Cummings

I absolutely love this sweet book. The dog in this story is homeless and writes letters to families and businesses on his street to ask to join their family. The story is written in letters back and forth so this would be a great addition to your writing unit. I love this book because it encourages people to rescue homeless dogs.

“Lulu is Getting a Sister” by Judith Viorst

Affiliate link

I’m a big fan of the Lulu series but I did not like the third book in the series. This book totally makes up for that. Lulu is going to be a big sister and she is not having it. Her parents send her to a big sister camp to teach her how to be a big sister and, as you can imagine, Lulu causes some mischief there. Your students will love this book because it’s funny, relatable, and just a good story.


Women Who Dared: 52 Fearless Daredevils, Adventurers, and Rebels by Linda Skeers

This beautiful book is full of information on amazing women from around the world. There are so many women included that were unfamiliar to me but I can’t wait to learn about them. This book would be a great addition to your library for research and just because we all need to know about these women.

“The Doctor with an Eye for Eyes: The Story of Dr. Patricia Bath” by Julia Finley Mosca

Affiliate link

This is another great book about an important American woman. Dr. Patricia Bath is such an inspiration. She worked tirelessly to improve eye care, especially for impoverished African Americans who were experiencing high levels of blindness. This book is written in rhyme and is a great read aloud.

Books for You

“Wolf Hollow” by Lauren Wolk

Affiliate link

“Wolf Hollow” is a teen book but it does contain some very difficult situations. I loved this book. It reminded me of “To Kill a Mockingbird.” The story takes place in a small town after World War II and what happens when a new girl moves into the town. This book made me feel all the emotions. So good!

“Sometimes I Lie” by Alice Feeney

Affiliate link

If you love thrillers, you should read this book. I had no idea what was coming and the ending blew my mind. This story is about a woman in a coma and alternates between her present and past. I couldn’t put this book down.

“Bring Me Back” by B.A. Paris

Affiliate link

This is another fun thriller! I couldn’t predict what was happening in this dark thriller. Russian dolls will never be the same to me again. Check this one out if you enjoy thrillers.

“The Room on Rue Amélie” by Kristin Harmel

Affiliate link

If you like historical fiction, you will like this book. The story takes place in France during World War II. An American moves there with her French husband and gets caught in the war. This is a beautiful, heartwarming story.
