The American Girl series
by Susan S. Adler

I remember reading this series in elementary school. I enjoyed every story, but the stories I loved the most were with Samantha. I even got an American Girl doll one year for Christmas that looked just like me but with an old fashioned dress to look like Samantha.

by Shannon Hale

This is a great graphic novel for helping kids understand the dynamics of friendship, how they can and should be kind to all.

Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing 
Judy Blume

This is the first book in Judy Blume's classic "Fudge" series, and it focuses on Peter and the misadventures of Peter's younger brother whose nickname is Fudge. Siblings equal mayhem in this funny book that I read for the first time when I was in elementary school.

Animal Science was one of my favorite subjects in school. I was always obsessed with dogs, so I really enjoyed reading books on the canine group.

One of my all-time favorite read-alouds! Frances, the little badger, and her best friend Albert have the very best lunchbox menus.

Good Night Moon
by Margaret Wise Brown

When I was in kindergarten, I always asked my mom or dad to read this book to me every night. My mom says the book had a way of calming me down since I was always on the go.
