Your favorite touchstone...

As I read others' blogs, I say to myself...why aren't there any new posts...duh...I wonder if anyone says that about mine.

Anyways, just looking for new books to share with my class. Do you have a favorite text you like to use to teach connections in reading workshop or small moments in the writing workshop? I like using Fireflies by Julie Brinckloe (spelling of last name is not right I'm thinking, but I'm trying to do this in a hurry. I also like using Gooney Bird Greene to teach sensory images...

Anyone else?

For small moments I've used Ezra Jack Keats' Snowy Day. Lucy Caulkins gave me the idea.
