First Week of December Must Reads!

Did you know?
These are some great books
That you should show! 
To fill your students minds
With thoughts of holiday times!

Here is a list of my must reads for the first week of December with my students! There are just so many holiday books I thought I would share them during each week leading up to Christmas. Enjoy! 

Gingerbread Books: 

I love to read a few gingerbread stories to compare and contrast them and see which one is the students favorite.

If you haven't read about the smarter, sweeter gingerbread girl who leaps and twirls I highly recommend you get this book! It is always a class favorite with boys and girls because of the twist at the end!

This little baby is too adorable and it is so fun to build gingerbread houses after reading this book! 

The Gingerbread Man Loose in the School

A new favorite that our librarian read to my class this week! 

Happy Reading! 

P.S. I thinking about reading the Hunger it too much of a teen novel or is it for all ages? I would love to know and hear your feedback about the books! 


  1. Thanks for the book suggestions! Can't wait to add them to my Amazon cart. DEFINITELY read the Hunger Games! I was hesitant at first, too, but I just finished rereading them for the 5th time and can't wait for the movie. You'll love them.

  2. Thanks for posting. My gingerbread unit is one of my favorites! I have not heard of the Gingerbread Man Loose in the School. It looks too cute not to get though. :-)

  8. We are reading Gingerbread stories as well. We've read two Gingerbread Man stories, the Gingerbread Boy, the Gingerbread Baby (Jan Brett), and the Matzo Ball Man. Stop That Pickle! and the Gingerbread Girl are on their way from our Bookmobile. I also ordered the Jalapeno Man last night. Can't wait to see that one! :)
