Disgusting!

Do you have one book in your classroom that is loved so much you have trouble keeping it on the shelf? You know, the one that's so "loved" it's falling apart?

Here's mine:
It's called Gross Out:  Animals That Do Disgusting Things.  Kind of a catchy title, isn't it?  Trust me, it lives up to its name!  When I saw the book, I suspected it would be popular, so I bought a couple of copies.  I guess teaching for about a gazillion years has taught me about kids, because I was totally right about that.  Those two copies have been loved so much, that there's more tape than book now!  The kids actually argue about whose turn it is next with "the book".

As you probably guessed, it's particularly popular with the boys.  It is an information book about several unusual animals including such loved animals as vampire bats, leeches, and the dung beetle.

I might just pick up a few more copies as a holiday gift for the class.

Here are a few other books that are wearing down real fast:
                         

All the above images are links to Amazon to find out more about these books.  

What are the favorite books of your students?

  2. I love Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! We read it this week & it has only been available to my kids a few days & they love it so much that it has already been taped twice!

  3. The Who Would Win books are huge right now with the boys in my classroom! I bought the set from Scholastic and I don't think they are going to make it through the rest of the year!
