"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!

.: The Versatile Blogger Award :.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to Jen at Teach Mentor Texts for bestowing this award on my little blog!!!

I am particularly honored to receive this award from her, because she is a fellow teacher with whom I share the same philosophy of teaching reading to children.  Check out her blog by clicking on the link above ... you will find it to be a vast resource of high-quality literary and teaching information!!!

Okay, now for the rules of this award:
1. Thank the person who gave you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason! (in no particular order...)
4. Contact the bloggers you’ve picked and let them know about the award.

Seven Things About Myself:
1.  I love, love, love to practice yoga.  It greatly de-stresses me!
2.  I love cats.
3.  I have a terrible fear of drowning.  When others express fear about sharks in the ocean, I don't cringe.  I do, however, cringe at the thought of drowning.
4.  I just had our fourth child this past January.  She is absolutely beautiful!
5.  I love to take naps!
6.  My favorite TV show of all time is The Golden Girls.  I own the entire series on DVD! I know that any time I watch it, I am guaranteed to belly laugh! Oh, and my favorite "Golden Girl" is Dorothy, played by the late (and incredibly talented) Bea Arthur.
7.  I love all manner of things related to fall and Halloween - apples, pumpkins, falling leaves, ghosts, goblins, and witches ... just to name a few!!!

And here are the fifteen blogs to whom I am passing along this award:

I hope you can take a little time to check out the blogs I awarded ... they are some of my faves!!!
