Community Building Picture Books to Start the School Year

I don't want to think about it quite yet, but some start back-to-school sooner than we do in WI, and want time to find and preview books to see if they'll work for your communities, so...
These are some favorite picture book read aloud recommendations to kick off #classroombookaday at the start of the school year to build community in your classroom.

  2. What makes me so happy and excited for this ritual again? Seeing the abundance and variety of new books I can expose my students to while we build our classroom community. Thank you Jillian for sharing new titles and guiding us.

    For me, moving from 4 to 5 this year, it’s important to find new books. Some books will be repeated, just as rereading a favorite book reminds us why we loved it the first time and let’s us notice things we may have missed.

    You have saved me a great deal of time and energy with this post and for that I thank you.
