31 Days of Literature Unit Study Ideas

For the month of October, I'm going to be doing a special series here on the blog. It's no secret that I love reading and all things literature. For this month, I'm choosing thirty-one of my favorite children's books. I'll be sharing about the book, topics to discuss, activities to do in conjunction with the book, and links to other pages of fun things that might go well with a unit study of the book.

It's fairly easy to expand one great book into a short unit study by just taking ideas from the book and running with them. In this month's series, I want to show you how as well as provide thirty-one to get you started. I'll be using books for little ones, for younger elementary, for older elementary, and a few for older kids.

On this page, I'm sharing all thirty-one literature unit studies. You can also get a free printable sbook with all the studies by clicking here.
