How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Suess is one of my favorite books I've ever read. Although its very simple, It's so fun and has a great moral behind it so of course i would recommend reading it in the classrooms. The book is about the mean ole Grinch in Whoville who tries to put a stop to Christmas. Cindy Lou Who teaches the town and the Grinch that Christmas is't just about at the presents of the material things. Christmas is about being together and the things that don;t come wrapped in perfect little bows or cost a lot of money. Family and the people you are with mean the most. I would rate this book a five out of five and it is listed as a on the Lexile scale as a 510L. An activity I would get my students to do would be to complete a story map of the book. I would then want for them to illustrate the events of the story they have included in their map.
