lessons so I can start building a collection over the summer. >>

Any Eric Carle book!!! The Mixed Up Chameleon (lesson on collage) is really
popular with K-5 and check out the website www.eric-carle.com there is a
wonderful lesson on color that corresponds to his book Hello, Red Fox.
I also like the book Who Is The Beast by Keith Baker. It has fabulous
illustrations! I have used it for lessons on animals, pattern, printmaking,
line, etc. Also the Great Kapok Tree by Lynn Cherry?? a book on the
rainforest with beautiful illustrations and message. I have used it on a
lesson having to do with rainforest (clay, drawing, paper mache, etc)

Hope these help you out. I have other suggestions, but my mind is slow at
this early moment so I will have to get back to you!
