Must Have Picture Books Linky Party

Lindsey from The Teacher Wife is having a "Must Have Picture Books" linky party. I'm a little late but I'm joining the party!! 

 Here's my top five favorites (sooo hard to narrow down to just 5):

1. Unlovable by Dan Yaccarino is a cute story about a pug who learns 2 things: 1)that he is lovable just the way he is and 2)the true meaning of friendship. My students LOVE the surprise in this story!

2. Stephanie's Ponytail by Robert Munsch is about a girl that likes to have her own look. So when her classmates begin copying her ponytail, she finds increasingly outrageous ways to wear her hair until she outsmarts the copycats. My students always wonder what Stephanie will do next!

3. I Wanna Iguana by Karen Kaufan Orloff is about a boy named Alex. He is trying to convince his mom to let him have an iguana, so he puts his arguments in writing. So funny! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE David Catrow and his illustrations!

4. My Lucky Day by Keiko Kasza. A hungry fox is sure that it's his lucky day when a delectable-looking pig knocks on his door by mistake.

5. Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon by Patty Lovell is about a little girl who embraces her differences and stands up to the class bully. She doesn't let anyone get her down. A great story for teaching children acceptance and self-esteem. Once again, David Catrow does the wonderful illustrations.

Those are my picks and you can find a TON of others if you go check out the linky party!!
