    My favorite picture book read-alouds are Robert Munsch books. We do an author study on him early in the fall. My librarian can always tell when that happens because all his books get checked out by my class! lol

    My favorite chapter book read-alouds are the Wayside School books by Louis Sachar. They don't get old to me. Even though I read them year after year, I still find them hilarious!
