I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.

Re: Back to School Books!

I remember reading those Magic School Bus books with my kids.  Loved them!  I'll have to add some of those to Gramma's Library for the little ones.

Re: Back to School Books!

I've recently been turned on to Andrew Clements' school stories, which he seems to be the master of. Really well written, good illustrations (especially the earlier ones, illustrated by Brian Selznik), and he even manages to sneak in lessons about language, economics, and journalism!

 

My favorites so far:

 

Frindle 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Landry News  

School Story  

Lunch Money

Thanks for these suggestions, JL!  Wasn't he a teacher himself, too, if I recall correctly?
