We have discovered two more books to add to our "Class Favorites List"...

Yesterday we read the books Spoon and Chopsticks, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal.  These books lend themselves nicely to conversation about the "Author's Message", why the author wrote the book.  I was delighted to listen to the kids share their ideas about why Amy Krouse Rosenthal wrote these books.  Through conversation, they were able to determine that Rosenthal probably wrote these books to teach readers that it is our differences that makes each of us special.  I continue to be thrilled with the kids willingness to push themselves to think deeply about the texts we read.  Bravo second graders!
