The Jellybeans and the Big Book Bonanza by Laura Numeroff and Nate Evans

May Theme: Engaging the Reluctant Reader

Sometimes all it takes is one book to engage a child who may be reluctant to read.  Though it’s the end of the school year (for most), it’s never too late to try to entice a new reader.  This month, I will share books that explore reading as a topic.

Recommended Grades: K-2  

The Jellybeans and the Big Book Bonanza is another great book that demonstrates the power of reading.  Similar to Miss Brooks Loves Books! (and I don’t), Anna and her friends must find a book about a thing they love to write a book report.  All of her friends find one, will Anna?

Lesson idea: Have your own “Big Book Bonanza.”  Ask students to choose their own favorite topic, find a book related to it, and create an interesting book project about it.
