It’s back-to-school freebie week, so here’s something school-related, I give you some of he books I would have loved to read at school and would read with my class if I was a teacher.

The Handmaid’s Tale / Margaret Atwood –> I actually read it at school and enjoyed it.

Short Stories and Poems / Edgar Allan Poe –> Sorry Shakespeare, but I think Poe is a much better choice. His poems are beautiful and meaningful and his short stories are fun to analyze.

A Little Princess / Frances Hodgson Burnett –> it’s short, beautiful and teaches a lot

           enderAmerican_godshunger games

Ender’s Game / Orson Scott Card –> to introduce the kids to SciFi

American Gods / Neil Gaiman –> should be on every teacher’s shelf everywhere 🙂 Deals with multiculturalism, the struggle that comes with it and is written beautifully

The Hunger Games / Suzanne Collins –> why not. Kids would love it and dystopian tales are popular in school

            The Colour of Magicpotter1mockingbird

A Discworld novel / Terry Pratchett –> Funny and criticizes society. Good for education 😉

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone / Joanne K Rowlings –> Why not read one of the most popular books ever. So much to discuss. Is Harry a good example of  a hero? Lots of characterization.. I would have loved to spend time with this at school.

To Kill a Mockingbird / Harper Lee –> There has to be a Classic 🙂
