Learning with Mrs. Parker is having a linky party for favorite new read aloud books for the beginning of the school year! I have many that I have used for several years that have already been mentioned. Another that is not new either, but a good one is Kevin Knows the Rules. This book is written wonderfully and really explains the school rules well to children. This book was recommended through Teacher.net a few years ago. The illustrations are well done and has a poster that can be used in the classroom as well.

Of course I am also looking forward to the release of the new Pete the Cat book later this month!
