If you're anything like me, you enjoy a good hook at the start of a lesson. Something that will lure the kiddos in, grab their interest and keep them engaged throughout the upcoming project. For me, 9/10 that hook involves a picture book.
I teach self portraits with almost every grade, sometimes multiple times a year (I just LOVE to see their growth and how they represent themselves) so it's important to me to have a variety of great picture books up my sleeve to read not only at the start of a lesson, but throughout the project. Below you will find a list of just SOME of my favorite picture books that I like to read throughout a self portrait lesson.
I hope you find this list of books celebrating our identity to be helpful the next time you teach a self portrait lesson!

Happy Teaching (and Reading!)
