Bibliographic Information: McGinty, Alice B., and Wendy Anderson Halperin. Thank You, World. New York: Dial for Young Readers, 2007. Print.
Brief Annotation: This book is about thanking the world and other things around us. For each item we thank, there are eight pictures that show people from around the world thanking the same item.
Grade Level: 1-2
Readers who will like this: Students who like to see that they can connect with other students around the world will like this book. Students who enjoy the world around them will also enjoy this book.
Rating/ Response: 5- I enjoyed this book and the connections that it was able to make all over the world. The connections that the book was able to make were connections that are easy for students to understand. The pictures were wonderfully portrayed and it was easy to understand.
One question you would ask before a read aloud: If you were able to thank the world, what would you thank it for?
Reading strategy: Making Connections
Rationale for strategy: I chose to put this book under making connections because the entire idea is for children to feel like they can make connections with other students.
