    Re: Big books

    'The Very Hungry Caterpillar,' by Eric Carle, is one I have used when teaching Kindergarten.
    The story teaches counting to five, the names of the days of the week, and different types of food.

    Chicka, Chicka, Boom Boom, by Martin, Bill, Jr. Each letter of the alphabet runs up to the coconut tree. This book is great because it has big, colorful illustrations, and a rhythmic chorus.

    Just a few that I have used, and the children enjoy.

    With big books it's not "what's your favourite" but "where can you get them" question. They are very difficult to find.

    You should start a Big Boobs thread! Yours is bound to be unique.

    BW,
    One thing that worked for me is to make my own. As Trep correctly pointed out, it's sometimes very difficult and/or expensive to get good English language books here. Just make your own!

    Get some of that "Futureboard" do up your script in Word, print it out and glue the pages on. Then draw and color the pics yourself or, better yet, have the kids themselves draw and color the pics!

    You can bind the big pages together with some cheap metal rings.

    Some of the little kids I've taught loved them.

    I read this to my 7 month old nephew every night. He has no clue at all what I'm saying, but loves it and can pick it out of a stack. I love it too. There is a lot of nonsense language in it tho.
