This week’s recommendation, How to Babysit a Grandpa, comes from Mrs. Koller. As we prepare for Thanksgiving and think about spending time with our family, this is the perfect book! This is Mrs. Koller’s favorite book, as she says that the events in the story are very humorous, and her class always enjoys reading it. She also said the text structure helps her students with their own writing!
