"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 Meme - "A Bit of Me(Me)" from "There's A Book"

This meme was begun by The1stDaughter at the wonderful book blog, "There's a Book", as a way for us bloggers to get to know each other a little better on a more personal level.  Click on the link above to participate!

This Week's Question: Spring is here and summer is upon us. Tell us a bit about your favorite season and why.

This question is so much fun for me to answer - FALL!!! I LOVE FALL!! It is my absolute, totally, 100% favorite season!! I could write all day about my musings on this incredible season...so I'll just have to limit myself on the top five reasons on why I love fall!
  1. The leaves changing color and falling to the ground.  Poetry in motion...literally.
  2. Halloween.  I love decorating my home with tons of cute ghosts, goblins, and witches.  Just thinking about it right now is making me wish away the entire summer!
  3. Halloween again.  I adore dressing up my sweet little children in costumes! I love hearing them talk about what they want to be for Halloween - so sweet!
  4. Going to the pumpkin patch - one of my favorite activities for the entire year! We have a totally authentic, perfect pumpkin patch here in Louisburg, Kansas.  The visit is complete with a hayride and pulling the pumpkins straight from the vine.
  5. Sitting back with my family and watching It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.  Really - does it get any better than that???

A feel terrible! I saw your comment but didn't realize you posted about this! Please forgive me. :o)

I LOVE the fall! And I love that you incorporated Charlie Brown into it, because he really does make the season! I'd definitely say that right behind Easter, Halloween is my next favorite holiday. Is that weird? Sounds kind of funny at least.

Thanks so much for participating! Can't wait to see next week!
