My Promise Rainbow by Sally Lloyd-Jones
This book teaches children about God, Noah's Ark, and colors. It uses purple for the storm, blue for the rain, green for the land and trees, yellow for the sun and sand, and red for God's love. It teaches that the rainbow is made of colors, rain, sun, and God's great love for you. "But God remembered Noah, who gave this special promise: A storm is coming but i'll be with you. I'll keep you safe. My promise is true," is written on every page. Under every color on each page, there is a special Bible verse.

Johnny Tractor by Louise Price Bell
This book is about Farmer Fowler's farm equipment. At night when the Fowler family is sleeping, the farm equipment is wide awake. Johnny Tractor thinks that he is the most important machine, because he is a tractor. Perry Plow hitches up to Johnny Tractor, Dicky Disk cuts up dirt, Henry Harrow is used to smooth the fields, Danny Drill plants seeds, and Chucky Cultivator kills weeds. All of these machines were talking about how they were just as important as Johnny Tractor. Johnny gets mad, and tells them that none of them can do anything without him. Then, Clancy Combine comes up and reminds Johnny that he doesn't need him at all. Johnny feels ashamed, and agrees that they are all important. This book is cute, especially in our neck of the woods! It was originally published by Deer & Company in 1958.

Week 12
Miss Nelson is Back by Harry Allard and James Marshall is a wonderful book about substitute teachers. miss nelson tells her students that she will have to be out, because she is having her tonsils taken out. One of the older kids, tells miss nelson's students that they will probably have Viola Swamp as their substitute. The kids were scared to death, but Mr. Blandsworth, the principal, was their substitute. The students thought he was boring. He did corny card tricks, made shadow pictures, demonstrated bird calls, and showed goldfish slides. The students wanted to get rid of him. They climbed on each other shoulders and dressed up to look like miss nelson. The kids were excited. They went to the movies and ate ice cream. On the way home, they passed their teacher's house. She called the principal, and decided to dress up as Viola Swamp. The students started acting nice. Then a few minutes later, miss nelson was back. The children were excited! I think that all teachers should read this to their students before getting a substitute!

Bird Lady had found her hat in the woods!

Week 9
This week I read The Berenstain Bears Go to Camp by Stan and Jan Berenstain. This is a book about Brother Bear and Sister Bear getting out of school for vacation. The only problem is there is nothing to do. Mama Bear mentions she has received a Grizzly Bob's Day Camp brochure in the mail. She asks if the children would like to go to camp, but they say they will have to think about
it. They picked wildflowers, chased butterflies, and turned over some rocks while they thought about camp. They decided that they would try going to camp, and then went everyday after that. They had a few good tings and bad things happen to them. Brother Bear passed his swim test, Sister Bear made a picture, and they both got hurt playing. They went to Skull Rock for the night, and won medals at Field Day the next day. They decided camp was great!

Week 8
I read First Day by Dandi Daley Mackall. This book tells about a little girl’s first day of school from beginning to end. The child uses cute little rhymes throughout the book. When she gets in the car to go to school she says “Feeling funny in the car- `Don't you think we've gone too far?” The little girl is very nervous about her first day. She thinks of ways she can get out of there like taking a rocket to the moon or digging to China. After all of her worries, she realizes that school isn’t all that bad. She builds tall towers, gets recess, gets to color, and even says the alphabet.
This book would be great to share with your children on their first day of school. It might help the jitters!

Week 7
I read Tillie's Tuba by Maria Fleming to a fifth grade class that I was observing. The class was discussing adverbs, and I thought this book would be educational.
This book is about alittle girl named Tillie, who plays the tuba. The book tells where, when, and how she plays her tuba. She plays proudly, enthusiastically, loudly, day and night, early, late, anywhere, and everywhere. The problem is that Tillie annoys everyone with her playing. Her cat, family, friends, and teacher all get tired of hearing the loud noise. Her family finally tells her she needed to quit playing the instrument. Tillie agrees, and she put the tuba away. The only problem is that Tillie wants to learn to play the violin.
