  1. I just discovered this book “Preventing Misguided reading” I am going to have to buy it. Has anyone read the book? Does anyone have an opinion of the book? I am very curious!

  2. The International Literacy website looks like it has lots of resources I will be able to use, starting with Misguided Reading. I don’t know if I will catch raindrops on my tongue, doesn’t rain much here, but hopefully..

  3. They are ALL great reads! However I am partial to Rain, in an attempt to find the beauty in all that yucky wet stuff! I know how necessary it is, but c’mon – enough is enough already!!

  4. The Tree would be a wonderful and fun read for my preschoolers.
    It will encourage them to think about the way animals and humans
    live side by side.

  5. The misguided reading concept is intriguing, and who doesn’t love something sponsored by the NFL? The Fuel up to play looks good.

  6. The Runaway Egg sounds like a great book for students to make connections to. 🙂 Thanks so much for such a wonderful opportunity to win these delightful books!

  7. Thanks so much for the link to …. awesome! I think ANY of the books would make me want to run outside and catch raindrops on my tongue, but if I had to only choose one, I think THE TREE would be a great addition to our 2nd grade classroom library!

  8. “Rain” is an interesting event in Arizona. the children do not go out for recess if it is raining. When it rains here, it POURS usually. I know the children have a different attitude towards rain than in areas where rain is a gentle weather phenomena.
