[Ask an Educator] Teachers Share Their Favorite Classroom Read Alouds

March is National Reading Month! During National Reading Month, we not only reflect on the importance of developing strong reading and comprehension skills for students, but we also celebrate the joy and fulfillment that comes with a lifelong love of reading.

Many students and educators celebrate National Reading month by both discovering new stories to read and by returning to old favorites. For some expert recommendations on what to read next, we turned to our amazing network of educators on Twitter and Facebook and asked you to tell us: What book or story do you enjoy reading to/with your class the most? What makes it special? 

Over 100 educators shared their favorite reads with us! Here are just a few of our favorite answers:

The Three Little Kittens

The Magic Tree House series by Mary Pope Osborne

The Invisible Boy by Trudy Ludwig

You are Mine by Julie Monico

I Have a Dream by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Kadir Nelson

Penguin Problems by Jory John

My Weird School series by Dan Gutman

The Great Peach Experiment series by Erin Soderberg Downing

How to Win a Slime War by Mae Respicio
