I love that every month on the 10th, a few of us teachers bring you some of our favorite read alouds each month with some great activities that you can use right away. I’m all for easy, engaging, and fun!
What made me buy Looking at Lincoln, by Maira Kalman a few years ago with my Scholastic points was the gorgeous, bright colors. I know you’re not suppose to judge books by their cover, but I couldn’t resist and judged away.
This book is about a little girl who is walking down the street and sees someone she thinks looks just like Abraham Lincoln. She wants to learn more about him and discovers many fascinating details. What I love about this story is that the little girl makes connections to her life and has a few silly questions for him. The book is written from her perspective while giving the reader many great facts. This book is perfect to accompany your President’s unit.
How pretty are these watercolors?!?!
