I love A Seed Grows for teaching the life cycle of a sunflower seed. The simple text is paired with bright and colorful illustrations.  The sequential story presents the early science concept of plant life and plant vocabulary in a direct and accessible way for toddlers and preschoolers. This is a must have for any teacher’s plant unit!


The simple joys of a rainy day are celebrated in this sweet book. Worm Weather will inspire you and your children to enjoy a simple adventure in the rain. The short, rhyming text filled with onomatopoeia is fun to read aloud. After repeated readings, invite your children to guess the matching rhyming words as you read out loud. Enjoy this lively book!


Muncha, Muncha, Muncha! Everything about this book is adorable: the illustrations, the storyline, the clever bunnies, and even grouchy Mr. McGreely. Children will laugh out loud as the bunnies persistently outsmart Mr. McGreely as he tries to save his garden. This book is perfect for practicing predictions and problem-solving for elementary students. Muncha, Muncha, Muncha is great fun for all ages!

"If I had young ones, I would definitely be taking them to these story times with my talented friend Jen! Co-teaching with her in my 2nd grade classroom, I got to see first hand her engaging read alouds."
