Unusual Books for Reluctant Readers

The most intriguing book you'll find is actually very simple yet very imaginative. It's titled 'Press here' by Herve Tullet. Children read it think that it has magic in its pages. Check out the video below to see why... you'll giggle.

Another Herve Tullet book (but this is for older kids) is 'Help! We Need a Title!' The book has characters, but they don't yet know what their story is. It's hilarious!
I love that this author really thinks out of the box. His books are so unique.

Other really unique books are below.

                (I highly recommend this one!)


Here's a book called The Onion's Great Escape by Sara Fanelli. Get this - this book actually splits and breaks apart for you to free an onion! It's full of philosophical questions that stretch the imagination of a child and get them to really think.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
