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.

Judging a Book By Its Cover: The Yiddish Policemen's Union

I'm so ecstatic to be participating in the *New* Cover Art Blog Hop at Socrates' Book Reviews. (Also, home to the Cozy Reading Challenge!) I've done a lot of graphic design in the past...and I can't help but to get swept away by a beautiful book cover!! I know I am drawn to a book by its cover, and I know many of my students are too! And now that I have a Kindle, this Blog Hop will give me an outlet to drool over pretty cool looking book covers.

I read this book a couple years back. I love the cover art. It's evocative of native Alaskan art (setting of book). The art makes you want to read and hold the book all day long.
