As far as the reads sections, I read Sideways Stories From Wayside School to my kids every year and they love it, I love it, everybody loves it. It's just a big ole love fest of goofy stories. This year, I may or may not have downloaded some of the cartoons for my kiddos. Really not like the book at all, but they LOVED them. :) This year, I discovered Mercy Watson and my second graders ADORED them. I think at one point, my class had every copy of the series checked out from the local library. I reread Teaching With Intention before school every summer, I just love, love, love it.
