Each month I spotlight two books guaranteed to delight readers and provide fun activities to further extend the meaning of each reading experience. With so many wonderful titles available, this is no easy task! I bring my 35-year teaching career, literacy expertise, and a passion for creating joyful readers and writers to every column I write.
This venue allows me to reach parents, grandparents, teachers, professors, etc. and...practice what I preach - 1) the importance of writing authentic text for sharing with an authentic audience, 2) staying current on high quality children's literature and sharing those titles with others, and 3) find a way for passing on passion for all things literacy! You can find me at the beginning of each month here.
