I am embarrassed to admit that I had just a few of her books, and I recently figured out how amazing her books are.
My town library had tons of her books, so I decided to check them all out and do an author study about her.
Every time I read a Nancy Carlson book I say to myself, I have to buy this book!!
Her books touch on all the issues we deal with all the time especially in kindergarten. I love how all of the characters in her books deal with obstacles and find ways to overcome them.
Below are some of the books we love and reading response sheets connected to that book. I hope you take one of her books out of your local library.
If you click on Nancy's site, she has an excellent video that will inspire any kindergartner to want to be an author when they grow up.
The download to the sheets is at the end of this post. If you have any Nancy Carlson activities you, do in your classroom, I would love to hear about them.

The students could make their favorite character.
Everyone LOVES Henry!
|I think everyone has this book! |
I was surprised at all the responses my students said about themselves.
Kindergartners love this book because it's easy to read!
