Blogging about one of my favorite back to school books. I have a little bit of a problem when it come to purchasing/hoarding picture books. It is hard for me to pick a favorite back to school book, but you can never go wrong with introducing 5 year olds to The Pigeon. It doesn't take long for them to start "reading" this story during book nook time and they love to draw the pigeon during writing workshop. I have purchased multiple copies of the pigeon books because everyone wants to have one in their book box.
