The One About Q - Quarters and Queens

Ok, I'll be honest.  Books beginning with Q aren't that plentiful.  Well, at least not in my classroom library.  I guess it's lacking in that sense.  Maybe I should spend some time pursuing books whose titles begin with a Q?

I have 2.  Neither are anything super fancy or special.  I do use them, but I don't have overwhelming feelings for them as I have for the books from A-P.  But, since I'm being honest here, I'll mention them.  

The first is titled Quarters.  Yes, you can guess what it's about.  It's part of a little easy readers series on money.  It's good.  I use it when we learn about money.  But it's a short little book, nothing spectacular.

The other is titled Queen Bee's Scream.  Sure, it sounds fascinating, but its alright.  It also is a part of a Scholastic series on phonics.  This one targets the long e sound.  So, it's great for teaching that and we enjoy it.  But not anything to write home, or to your readers, about.

I Googled books beginning with Q and there are a lot.  Not many look striking at a glance and many are in Spanish with a title that begins with Que or Quien.  I don't teach Spanish.  

So, sorry.  No wonderful advice today on a book.  What about you?  Any favorites that begin with Q?  Anyone?  Anything?  Bueller?  Bueller?

Thanks for hopping by!


  1. I think it would be hard to find kids books starting with a Q. Time to write one??
