Today I’m sharing one of my favorite read alouds for the beginning of the year that works perfectly as a mentor text because it has an important message and character to refer back to regularly when making sure you are building a reading classroom! The book is Born to Read by Judy Sierra.
This book looks SO good! I think we need it for sure! Thanks for the freebie too!

Adorable! And I love that quote, too! I think it makes a great poster!! Such cute ideas (as always)from you two! I will have to get this book. Sometimes I don't love that we go back to school so early because then I feel like I'm backtracking but I think this book can be read anytime, especially since my 4th graders have nooooooo reading stamina. I hope this can motivate them!!
Thanks for linking up!!!
