"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!

New Link Party I Discovered!!

I discovered a great new blog and link party yesterday at Kelly's Korner!! It's called "Show Us Your Life," and this week, it's all about sharing your favorite books with others!! Yea!! Totally my cup of tea...

Reading has always been a source of comfort and inspiration for me...in fact, I can (almost) say that I've never met a book I didn't like!! 

Here are a few of my favorites from when I was little:



Little House in the Big Woods Book and Charm (Charming Classics)

The Cricket in Times Square (Chester Cricket and His Friends)

Although I still prefer children's literature, here are some of my adult picks:

Angela's Ashes: A Memoir

Man's Search for Meaning

Dear Theo: The Autobiography of Vincent Van Gogh

I can't wait to go check out the other blogs in this link party! Happy reading!!

Beverly Cleary is one of my all-time favorites, by a long way! I just adore how well she writes about that age group, she's truly a kid at heart. Great choices!
