The Night Before 2nd Grade

Tomorrow is my first day with my new second graders!  I am super excited!  I've worked insanely hard the past two days frantically getting a classroom unpacked and ready for kiddos.  Thanks to some wonderful parents and friends, it's good enough to start.  Hopefully by the end of the week it will be presentable enough for pictures.  :)  I was able to meet my new class this afternoon when they all brought their desks/supplies into my room.  I have 24 adorable second graders.  I can already tell I am going to LOVE this year!  

My last thing on my list for tonight is making my "Teacher Hunt" from The Teacher Wife's AWESOME Back-to-School Unit.  We are going to do this tomorrow as a way for them to get to know a little more about me, since I'm pretty much the newbie here.  :)  

But I am stuck on this one:
I just love ALL books!  I can't pick just one that I love!  What on earth will I do?  What is your FAVORITE book?  How did you decide on that one?

My favorite book is Christy, by Catherine Marshall. But for a student example, I usually pick books that they potentially have heard of. In which case I would pick The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. An absolutely amazing story and I read it aloud every year.
