Picture Book Linky Party

I cannot resist books - picture books, chapters books, nonfiction books, I love them all. That is why I am back to the blogging world so soon (2 days, 2 posts = unheard of) - to join a fabulous linky over at First Grade and Fabulous!

So picture books for the first week of school. I blogged about something similar last year, during a different linky (click {HERE} to see that list) but I thought I would come up with some new books for this link-up.

#1 To teach about treating others with kindness, I must include, Have You Filled a Bucket Today? by Carol McCloud and David Messing.

#2 To teach about the importance of reading, I will have to included, The Incredible Book-Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers.

#3 And just for something cute, If You Take a Mouse to School by Laura Numeroff.

Now I have to say, there are so many more fantastic books that I want to mention about school rules, friendships, bullying, hard word, etc. but I could just go on for ages, so I'll leave it with these three for today. I hope to do some future blog posts around books for these themes, so hopefully I'll get to mention some more then!
