Inside This Book (Are Three Books) (2015) by Barney Saltzberg. This quirky picture book is actually a collection of smaller and smaller picture books written by three siblings. The oldest brother shares his book of observations, story ideas, and a comic; the middle sister writes an ode to poetry and poems; and the youngest brother illustrates a story about his family (and a dinosaur).
I shared this book with my students this week on our last day of school before presenting them each with their own end-of-year gift: a blank book! (Last summer, on a tip from another teacher, I started stalking the dollar deals section at Target, where I was able to get 32-page blank books for $3 per 3-pack. Amazon has comparably priced 16-page blank books.)
Do you have a favorite book-ish end of year routine?
