Top 4 Mystery Picture Book Read Aloud Recommendations

This past week I was working on completely overhauling my Mystery Reading Unit resource for my Teachers Pay Teachers store. While working, I was able to reread some of my favorites and I even discovered a new mystery read aloud book. I just love this selection of books and I want to share them with you!

Top 4 Mystery Picture Book Recommendations for elementary students.

The Good Egg Book Activity

I recently purchased The Good Egg by Jory John as part of a promotion at Barnes and Noble and I am so glad that I did! Just a few pages into the story I realized what a gem this book is! 

The Good Egg sends such a positive message about self-care! While written for kids, it is obviously a great message for adults, too! 

The Good Egg is an excellent read aloud to help kids understand self-care and how to deal with pressures.

Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast Read Aloud Recommendation and Opinion Writing Activity

While browsing at Barnes and Noble the other day I came across this funny book! I was not familiar with the author Josh Funk, but now I want to read all of his books! 

Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast by Josh Funk has me hooked!! 


Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast read aloud recommendation with a bonus FREE opinion writing activity!

This book is so much fun- your students will 💜 it! The story is written in rhyme- which your students will notice right from the beginning. 

Blueberries for Sal Mentor Text Recommendation

Oh my goodness... I am in the midwest and it seems as if winter is going to go on FOREVER! So today I am going to share a book with you that makes me think of warmer times! It also happens to be a classic (published in 1948) - and I 💜 vintage books! 


Do you remember reading Blueberries for Sal when you were in elementary school, or have you shared it recently with your students?

Blueberries for Sal is a great mentor text for teaching figurative language.


Brave Irene Winter Book Recommendation

I just love sharing classic children's books and Brave Irene by William Steig is the one I am sharing today! This book is all about perseverance and setting your mind to something and doing it- a great message for kids (and adults, too)! 

Have you read Brave Irene to your students this winter?

Brave irene by William Steig is a great winter read aloud that focuses on character traits and motivations. Be sure to grab the free activity!
