2’s Day Books
Two of Everything by: Lily Toy Hong
Two of Everything is an amusing story with quite a twist for you to celebrate 2’s day. Mr. and Mrs. Haktak lived a simple life until Mr. Haktak stumbles across a magical pot. They discover that the pot can make two of everything! But, this story takes a turn of events when Mrs. Haktak falls in. It is a fun and silly story that will lead to great discussions. Ask your students what they would put in the pot? And a great way to pull in math concepts!
Two Bad Ants by: Chris Van Allsburg
Two Bad Ants is a cute story told from an ant’s perspective. The ants go searching for food in a human’s house but decide to go on a bit of an adventure. My favorite part of this story is that the images are shown from the ant’s perspective allowing for a totally different viewpoint. A fun story of two ants for 2’s day!
Tuesday by David Wiesner
Tuesday is one of my favorite wordless picture books. And, 2’s day is a very unique Tuesday similar to this story. It’s not just any Tuesday night, and this one is filled with magic and flying frogs. The artwork is incredible, and it will have your students enthralled. And wordless picture books allow for excellent discussion and interpretation. Be sure to check out my post that dives a bit deeper into how to use wordless picture books.
Joyful Noise by: Paul Fleischman
Joyful Noise is a book of poems but poems of two voices. It’s a unique reading experience as two voices go back and forth. An excellent activity for partner work, and these poems are so interesting. I love how they are funny, intelligent, and full of information about insects. This one is definitely great for celebrating 2’s Day!
Dragons Love Tacos 2 by: Adam Rubin
Dragons Love Tacos 2 is a great way not only to celebrate Tuesday but one of my favorite days of the week, Taco Tuesday! This sequel includes dragons, tacos, time travel, and some mischief. What’s not to love? It’s a fun book with dragons who are seriously missing tacos, but will they bring them back? You’ll definitely want to include this book in your rotation of read-alouds.
Henry and Mudge by: Cynthia Rylant
Henry and Mudge is definitely a blast from the past for many of us. And Henry and Mudge are two of my favorites. This duo has a special bond, and they encounter some really great adventures. I thought, what better way to celebrate 2’s Day than with some of the best pairs around? This set is GREAT for character development as this series allows you to grow with the characters.
Zoey and Sassafras by: Asia Citro
Zoey and Sassafras is a newer chapter book series. Nevertheless, another awesome kid and pet duo, but these two love all things science. It is a great chapter book series to introduce to your students, and I love how they incorporate aspects of the scientific method to help your students better understand these concepts.
Elephant & Piggie by: Mo Willems
Elephant & Piggie might be my favorite duo. I mean, how can you not love them? They are hilarious and appeal to the younger crowd. These two are best friends who are silly and will definitely make your students laugh. But don’t forget to bring out your best reading voice to truly highlight these silly characters. Again, another series that is perfect for younger readers.
Frog and Toad by: Arnold Lobel
Frog and Toad is an iconic duo, nostalgic for many of us. Frog and Toad celebrate friendship and remind us of the importance of having companions. If you haven’t already introduced this series to your students, then 2’s Day might be a perfect time.
