Picture Book Linky

I am linking up with First Grade and Fabulous for a great linky party!  It is all about picture books to use the first week of school.  (Which is creeping closer and closer...yikes!)  Here are a few of my favorite picture books to start out the school year.  Each book has link to purchase it from Amazon if you are interested!
I used this book for the first time last year.  (Thanks to blog stalking!)  My class LOVED it.  We will be doing it again with all of the great ideas that were shared in the bloggy world.

I take time {almost} every day to read a chapter book.  It is usually a Junie B!  This is the first one we read.   

This is a fabulous book about working together.  It is short and simple but SO cute!  

I also read a picture book I wrote in college.  I don't have a is at school....and it is understand!  It is called Billy the Busy Bumblebee.  The kiddos LOVE that I wrote it.  I still have my grade and professor's comments in the back.  The kids really get a kick out of ME being GRADED!  THEY think the story is great.  I like to use my book as an introduction to the students learning that they will become real author's this year.  
And to go with our jungle animal theme!
A favorite year after year!  If you want a class book freebie to go along with it, click the picture below!
