My favorite books to read for read-alouds are a collection of counting books by Jennifer Ward! They have such a fun rhythm to read to and the kids love looking for the "hidden numbers" on each page!
-Way up in the Arctic
-Way out in the Desert
-Somewhere in the Ocean
-Over in the Garden
Another favorite that I love reading to talk about diversity and how we are all unique, but the same on the inside! Whoever You Are by Mem Fox! It is a wonderful book and I would definitely recommend it!
Lastly, I really enjoy Big Al by Andrew Clements! It is a great book for looking past how someone looks and looking at their personality! Such a cute ending and the message is pretty deep! My firsties during student teaching came up with the funniest answers about what the book was about!
