Hi friends! This blog is for teachers and families- all for the sheer joy of literacy. When we are enthusiastic about reading and writing our students and our own kids become excited to read and write. I hope that we all can be models for those in our care- how did you show your passion for reading, writing, learning, language, or words today?? It's in those small, daily moments that we teach kids to love literacy.

On My Nightstand: In the Garden of Beasts

I've been reading In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson.  I'm 18 or 19% into the Kindle version. Nonfiction always seems to take me a while to read. It's fairly interesting so far. Has anyone else read this book?


  1. I haven't, but I wanted to let you know I'd shared one of your quotes/your blog in the Mid June Children's Literacy Roundup: http://www.thebookchook.com/2011/06/childrens-literacy-and-reading-news.html

  2. Thanks for including this blog on your roundup~ I am alwyas so inspired by your blog (and Jen Robinson's Bookpage too)-- such wonderful foder for the flames of learning!! ;)
