I'd most like to read Tigers & Tea with Toppy. I like that it's about real people, animals, art, and science all rolled into one.. It also sounds like it would be a fun thing to read as it takes you through New York City of the past.

I can not wait for Grow Up, David! These books are so wonderful for students! They easily relate and I love to use No David! books at the beginning of the school year to discuss classroom behaviors. I also use these books to teach how to read the pictures since that is the main component to understanding what is happening in the books! I hope I have the chance to win this book, I know it will be well loved in my classroom!
