NEW!

girl-reading“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”  L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables~~~
So much to appreciate in the transition to autumn.  The air feels different as we turn to a new season, and new beginnings.  As the air turns crisper and we develop new schedules and rhythms, there is nothing more satisfying than escaping into the pleasures of a good book.  I always slip a few books into my ever-ready backpack, for any fall adventures on the weekend or tucked into free moments during the day.  I still (always!) have lots to read–and recommend.  In the weeks ahead, we look at some terrific new books for toddlers, poetry for the whole family,  mysteries for the tween set, and updates on books for children and adolescents  by some of our favorite authors and illustrators.   Some surprises are in store; more fantastic new books are hitting the shelves every day.  We can hardly keep up with all the good reads–but we’re doing our best.  We promise to keep  you informed!  Hope you’ll also share your finds with us, too.   Happy Reading!
Coming up: A STUDY IN CHARLOTTE and other Sherlock Holmes Spin-Offs

    You made my day! Thank you! If there are ever any special book types or ages you’re interested in, let us know… we’re always happy to have an excuse to explore a new subject or idea.

  3. I have a four year old girl who loves books, so if there is a subject she’s burning to know more about I will make a request.🙂 Thank you!

    What are suggested book titles to read as an introduction to a Parent Workshop ELA K – 2 and Grades 3 – 5. Something to get parents motivated about sharing books with their child.

    I would suggest the above link to share with parents, or some of the lists from within it. They could choose from classic read-aluds to “read by myself” books. Let me know what you decide! I’d love to hear how your workshop goes!
