Recommended Books for Elementary School Children

1. THE LITTLE RED PEN
by Janet Stevens & Susan Stevens Crummel (Harcourt).

The Little Red Pen is ready to grade papers, but everyone refuses to help her! She tries to grade all the papers and keep the world from ending, but she can’t do it alone. See what happens when the rest of the supplies, from Stapler to Señorita Chincheta the Pushpin, learn the importance of teamwork and creative problem solving as they work together to res-
cue their friends and keep their work going.

2. HOW TO BABYSIT A GRANDPA
by Jean Reagan (Knopf).

Babysitting a grandpa can be a big task, but it’s easy if you know what to do. This how- to book teaches kids how to babysit a grandpa, including what kinds of food to give him for a snack (ice cream topped with cookies or cook- ies topped with ice cream are your best bets) and
what kinds of games to play. Your child will love reading this with his grandpa!

3. MY MOM HAS X-RAY VISION
by Angela McAl- lister (Tiger Tales).

Matthew’s mom always knows what he’s doing, even when she’s not around. The only explanation is
that she has x-ray vision, just like a superhero! She always knows when he’s jumping on the bed or wrestling with sea monsters in the bathtub. See what happens when Matthew puts his theory to the test.
