"Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them."
- Arnold Lobel


Every Tuesday is Book Review Day, where I review and recommend a children's book.

Every Wednesday is Wise Owl Wednesday, where you can butter up your brain with some children's literature facts - history, milestones, trivia ... stop by here to learn a little something about the amazing world of books for the young!

Every Thursday is Literacy Tip Day, where I offer literacy suggestions for your children based upon my teaching and parenting experience.

Keep cozy this fall with a good book!

The day it happened...

The day it happened had been one of those crisp, cool autumn days that was simply perfect. Everything about the day had been marvelous...and unexpected.
Genevieve had been helping her parents in the family bookstore, unloading the newest shipment of books. She could feel some sort of magic stirring in the air, although she wasn't quite sure where it was coming from. After all, since she was a baby, her mother and father had said to her that simply being around books was magical.
