Last year, the goal was to get MO books for our library. My students fell in love with the amazing trilogy of Knuffle Bunny, eagerly shouted "NO" to the Pigeon, and learned what true friendship is through Elephant and Piggie. Mo Willems was a must know author in Pre-K 108. Our kids were able to identify his books as fast as kids can deny the Pigeon of driving the bus.
As I brought the book into my classroom to share with my students, I looked inside to find it was an autographed copy! Most importantly, my students loved to book! The year concluded and it was time for me to focus on the new group in September. I created a DonorsChoose project called SHEAking Up Our Library with Bob Shea Books! Over the summer, with the help of another author, Mr. Neil Gaiman, this project was funded! I couldn't wait for September to come and introduce these wonderful books into our library.
These books has already made a huge impact on my students' lives! I can't wait to see how else we can utilize Shea's other books into our curriculum!
