Other than the August 10 for 10 I have not blogged in about a month. Although I LOVE my little blog here, I decided to take some time off to enjoy summer with my kiddos. Now I am ready to start a new school year and feel as rejuvenated as one possibly can. I have read over the last month. While I won't share everything, here are some standouts. Please feel free to click on the book title to visit the book's page on Goodreads.

Peter Brown can do no wrong in my eyes. This book is adorable. Is this teacher really a monster? I plan to read it to my 4th graders within the first few days of school.

The author recalls a time when he followed an ant trail and what he noticed. Great book to spark discussions about close reading. Very simple text with big, bright illustrations. Good for grades K-3.
