"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!

"What Are You Reading?" and Armchair BEA

Happy Monday! Today is "What Are You Reading?" linky time at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books

The Happiness Project: Or, Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun

I have decided that I am finishing Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project THIS WEEK! This means that I can only read this particular book...I cannot pick up my other literature until I am finished.  There.  I said it. Please keep me accountable, fellow bloggers!!!! :)

Here are a few of the books I will be reading with my children:

Mrs. Spitzer's GardenBaby's First BookThe Little Piano Girl: The Story of Mary Lou Williams, Jazz Legend

Arbor Day SquareGrasshopper Pie and Other Poems: All Aboard Poetry Reader

I am also gearing up for Armchair BEA that starts tomorrow!  I am so excited to meet some awesome book bloggers and check out some cool new blogs!

I have added a new weekly feature here at A Novel Idea, called "Mystery Friend Friday", and I am really excited about it!  Every Friday I will highlight a particular children's author or illustrator, giving clues Monday through Thursday as to who he or she might be.  That person will be our Friday Mystery Friend!  Here's the first clue:  She is "somebunny" who you might know quite well.

And...check out the top of my sidebar! I have my own button now! Please grab it and share the love!

Just discovered your blog through It's Monday! And I'm a new follower. I love that you combine your adult and children's books on your blog. I'm always on the look out for good kid's books.
My guess is Runaway Bunny???
Have a great week!
