Every year Mr. Bender carefully selects a book for each month of the school year. These books are always connected by a particular theme which changes from year to year. This year's is a really powerful theme, but we aren't going to tell you what it is just yet.

At the end of each month, we will share the Book of the Month with you in the hopes you will discuss it further with your children. Click on the books below to be taken to video read alouds and resources to help extend the work your children have done in their classrooms!
