In January, I started sharing all the books that are found in my Flipping for Literature series. Can you believe we’re now talking about the September?! This year is going by so fast! There are so many great books you can grab off of your shelf in September, but let’s talk about four of them!
The Man Who Walked Between the Towers by Mordicai Gerstein
This is truly one of the most beautiful books that I own. It’s a Caldecott Medal winner that tells the story of the Twin Towers and the street performer that walked a tightrope between them. Philippe Petit watched as the towers were being constructed and one day disguised himself as a construction worker so that he could install his tightrope. I love how this book weaves together the memories of Philippe and the towers. This is a wonderful book to teach young children about the World Trade Center. You can read another blog post about it HERE.
Wemberly Worried by Kevin Henkes
I’ve blogged about Wemberly several times over the years, but I just love this book so much! Wemberly worries about everything and she’s especially anxious about starting school! When she goes to school on the first day, she meets someone just like her and her worries disappear! The school year is still new in September (and just starting for some), which makes this a perfect read! This is a great book to use to talk about emotions and it’s very relatable!
The Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon
Camila Cream worries about what other people will think about her. She loves lima beans, but she never eats them. Her friends hate lima beans and she wants to fit in. It’s the first day of school and suddenly she’s covered in stripes! This is a wonderful story about the importance of being yourself! The imagery in this story is so vivid and it’s my favorite book to use to teach visualization! You can read more about that HERE.
How I Became A Pirate by Melinda Long
This is another book that I’ve blogged about repeatedly over the years! haha! I love pirates and this is my favorite pirate story! Talk Like a Pirate Day is September 19th, so this is a great book for September! Jeremy Jacob finds himself on Braid Beard’s ship and learns how to become a pirate! He loves that there’s nobody there to tell him what to do, except when it’s bedtime. He starts to miss his family and begins to question life as a pirate. It’s such a fun story and it keeps children captivated!
