Favorite Back-to-School Picture Book Linky Party

Happy Tuesday! At just shy of 11:00pm, it's still Tuesday here in Cali for a teeny bit.  My sleep schedule is funkdafied! But it's not too bad -- it gives me lots of excuses to search for cute teacher stuff.  And excuses to fill my Amazon cart! (Oh Prime, how I love thee.)

So tonight, while on the hunt for some creative back to school ideas, I stumbled across a linky party over at First Grade Found Me!

Chrissy is hosting a linky to share our favorite back to school picture books. And what a great idea that is - with perfect timing, too! I just love this idea, so I'm joining in on the fun. Hopefully you will to, so I can snag some more read alouds for August.

One of my favorite back to school reads is 'The Dot' by Peter H. Reynolds.  It's a sweet story about a little girl who gets inspired to express herself.

It's a lovely book that really touches a teacher's heart, too.  It reminds us that believing in a student can help them believe in themself.

What are you favorite back to school reads? Head on over to First Grade Found Me and link up to share!
