Kate Napolitan Kid Books

Kate Napolitan Recommends:

Books I used for building classroom community (and for integration into curriculum [e.g. a poetry unit]). I used a lot of picture books and short stories for read alouds even though I taught intermediate—they could pack a punch in a short amount of time:


Blues Journey


Love That Dog


The House on Mango Street


Marisol McDonald


Thank You, Mr. Falker


The Watsons Go to Birmingham-1963


Harvesting Hope: The Story of Cesar Chavez


Those Shoes
