The "Where's Greg?" Edition

Like Waldo, I've been flitting around from landscape to landscape... though I do not have a camera, a key, a dog, or wizards along with me. It's been fun and adventurous (well, sorta)... but unfortunately, one place I haven't been found much is right here. Ahhh, to be cloned!

One thing I've been doing on my journeys is starting to mull a year-end read-aloud. It's been a fabulous year, and I'd love to end it with a bang. If you know of any brilliant picture book to read to a slew of 2nd-3rd graders to finish off the library year, I hope you'll let me know.

Off to the next picture....

Love your Waldo analogy!

One of my favorites is “A Little Bit Scary People” by Emily Jenkins

I don't think you can go wrong with this age group with Dav Pilkey--his Dogzilla and Cat Kong are great read-alouds! I also thought of Stanley's Party and My Lucky Day by Keiko Kasza. Plus what about Jon Scieska--Stinky Cheese Man or True Story of 3 little Pigs, or even Math Curse or Science Curse?

Thanks for the suggestions!
