    I also love NO DAVID. They also like his other books, Good Boy, Fergus and Alice the Fairy. The like looking at "A Bad Case Of The Stripes" but they don't nessicarially have the attention to listen to the whole story.

    My kids love "Brown Bear, Brown Bear" by Bill Marten Jr/Eric Carle
    The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle
    The Very Hunry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
    The love "The Napping House" by Audrey Wood

    My suggestion. Find a reputable EC catalog and look at their collections of books. Many have them listed by theme, cultural diversity, author, etc.

    I think this would give you many ideas of what is appropriate for your class!
