"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

ABOUT

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!

Mystery Friend Friday :: Meet Children's Author Amy Krouse Rosenthal ::

Cookies: Bite-Size Life Lessons

.: Meet Children's Author, Amy Krouse Rosenthal :.

I became a HUGE fan of Ms. Rosenthal this past January after reading her book on motherhood, The Mother's Guide to the Meaning of Life: What Being a Mom Has Taught Me About Resiliency, Guilt, Acceptance, and Love (Guides to the Meaning of Life).


The Mother's Guide to the Meaning of Life: What Being a Mom Has Taught Me About Resiliency, Guilt, Acceptance, and Love (Guides to the Meaning of Life)

I could hardly put it down! It was full of laughter, wisdom, and acceptance, which are all reflections of this incredibly talented author as a person.  She is not only super-creative, but she is a true humanitarian. 

You must check out her blog, MISSion Amy K.R..  I follow it religiously, and I am astounded week after week at her genuine mission to spread kindness around the globe.

Here are a few of her children's books (and, yes, they are as cute as they look!). Check them out!!!
