Storytime Sunday: All About Me

So, the kiddos start back to Head Start this Wednesday! Our first study topic is going to be All About Me. Here are the books we will be reading (all big books):

Love Joy Cowley and all her leveled readers. Also, big books are great for talking about print concepts because it's easier for the children to see.

 This book talks about the differences and similarities of people from around the world. I like the page with the hands so the children can compare the shade and size of their hand with the ones in the book.

The illustrations in this book are great and I totally LOVE the mirror at the end, so children can look in and say something about themselves. This book focuses on the fact that everyone is unique and has some interesting feature about them. I like it because it encourages children to embrace the things about them that are different and be proud of it instead of embarrassed or self-conscious.
