This manual of ideas zeroes in on current picture book titles. It features reproducible worksheets, writing activities, related reading based activities, and technology for grades three through five. The ideas have been tested in the authors' libraries and are linked to national curricular standards. Though school librarians are targeted as the main audience for this book, it also is a valuable resource for the classroom teacher and reading specialist. Librarians will find the ideas and plans valuable as they collaborate with teachers to teach content area standards. The most similar resource to this book of lesson plans is the authors' first book, Linking Picture Books to Standards. This new book has the same format, but focuses on upper- level picture books and activities. It provides the librarian, classroom teacher, or reading specialist with worksheets that are ready to copy and patterns that are easy to follow. There are few resources of a similar genre on the market today--this book should help bridge the gap and provide much needed materials. Grades 3-5.

This book is very interesting. It's about Mrs Peters having seven children who are very picky. Everyday she works hard to make the food they eat every time. Then on Mrs Peters birthday they crept down the stairs to make their mother the food they eat everyday. But in the end they tossed all their food together. It was actually very beautiful but they thought it was ruined. They hid it in the oven but the next day Mrs Peters smelled something, something nice. She opened the oven door and she saw a beautiful cake. She danced for joy for she thought her children forgot her birthday. Now everyday they made the cake. It was easy to make. At then end of the story, there is a recipe of the cake. I tried baking it with my family and it was fun! I hope you all recommend this book to all of your friends. :)
