This book is truly a work of art. It features a bunch of wonderful poems about kids having recess and life in the Arctic.

The books increase in difficulty at a steady pace so students are not overwhelmed with words and catch themselves reading (to their absolute delight). For the last four years, I have been using this reading program for all my beginning readers. It’s been the one program that has consistently helped the majority of my students.
As a librarian, I haven’t often come across books that teach financial literacy to kids, so when I read Three Little Piggy Banks, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Financial literacy can seem intimidating, even for adults who have been paying bills and other expenses for years and years. It seems almost impossible to unpack such a mature subject for the youngest of children, but author Pamela George deftly simplifies the subject for young children. The book provides a very basic understanding of money: saving it, sharing it, and spending it.
