Welcome to my virtual library! My name is Shay Denney. I’m a preservice teacher with a mad love of words in any format. Here is where I plan to store all of my favorite books for a variety of levels.
Wemberly Worried is my absolute favorite character building book for younger grades! I think, specifically, it is a great icebreaker for the first day of school, as our protagonist spends a large part of the story worrying about her own first day! Wemberly is very relatable, and sparked a lot of personal connections with my Kindergarteners when I shared it with them last semester! Its level is K through 2nd, according to Scholastic’s Guided Reading scale.
