This blog is about all things literacy. Mainly, it’s about books: new books, book reviews, books to share, books to read, and tips for teachers and parents on how to use books. It’s also a place to share my experiences in reading and teaching and the impact reading has had on our lives! This blog also discusses writing and how to teach writing effectively in classrooms. Experience has shown that kids who are great readers are also great writers. So, this blog is dedicated to all of these ideas.
