"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 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!

Book Review #7

The Surprise Garden
by Zoe Hall
Illustrated by Shari Halpern

"We're planting the seeds for a surprise garden.  Can you guess what we will grow?"

Filled with the joyous excitement of planting a garden, children narrate their experience of planting seeds and watching them grow.  The prose is delicate and inviting - a perfect match for Halpern's colorful, cut-out illustrations.  Read this delightful book before or after planting seeds with your child! This book is recommended for ages 2-4 years.

Also by this author and illustrator:

**Clue for Friday's Mystery Friend:  She takes reading to the max!**
