"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!

Book Blogger Hop Time!

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop time is here again, courtesy of Jennifer over at Crazy for Books!

This week's question is:  Do you judge a book by its cover?

And my answer is ... a resounding YES!!!

Yep, folks, this avid reader and teacher is guilty of picking up a book based only on the cover illustration! I must say, however, that my intuition here has proven correct most of the time.

In fact, I discovered my absolute favorite series (pictured below) based upon the delicious cover illustrations!


 The Complete Wreck (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Books 1-13)



The children's novel I just finished was swiped off of the library shelves only because I fell in love with the darling mouse on the cover! (Come on, admit it - she's adorable!!)
The story was just as heartwarming as the illustration, too!


A Nest for Celeste: A Story About Art, Inspiration, and the Meaning of Home


So, yes, I do judge a book by its cover ... and I'm proud of it!!

Thanks for stopping by my site!

I think we all judge books by their covers... whether we like to admit it or not. :)
