Integrating Science and Literature with Eric Carle

Eric Carle has a beautiful way of teaching kids Science through his picture books, while also entertaining with fun stories and creative illustrations.

Little Red Writing

What a great new title to share with students to get them writing! I highly recommend this book. I am currently teaching 1st Grade, and my students were delighted when I read it aloud to them. This picture book is leveled for ages 5-8--but I suggest sharing it with writers of any age!

I have enjoyed creating my own children's book, and sharing that process with my students. This is a Maine alphabet book, featuring photos I have taken throughout my home state. It is exciting to see this for sale on Amazon, and to share it in print to inspire kids to make their own books!
