"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!

Tuesday Book Review

Masterpiece by Elise Broach

Written for ages 8-12, this heartwarming children's novel tells about the unique friendship between a shy boy named James and a beetle named Marvin who lives under his kitchen sink.  The two share a special bond as they get caught up in an art mystery together and must rely on their friendship to solve it.  The illustrations by Kelly Murphy are breathtaking and add a beautiful dimension to the story.  I enjoyed the simplicity and innocence of this story and would highly recommend it!
