There are few things better than settling in with your students to read a good book.  The miraculous way it calms kids down after recess…Their smiles and laughter…The “one more, pleeeeease.”  It’s pure magic.

And while kids are locked into a good story, it’s a great opportunity to build their reading comprehension so they learn to think deeply about what’s actually happening.
