I'm so happy to be dusting off the blog and getting back to joining this fantastic meme. I'm thankful for those who have reached out to me (you know who you are), encouraging me to return to sharing my passion for literacy here! While my day job has changed, my love of reading and connecting readers of all ages with fantastic books has remained at the heart of who I am and what I do! For those who don't know, I left the classroom (and the district I taught in for 19 years) to accept a Literacy Strategist role in a district about 35 miles north of where I live. The story of how it all came about is one for another day (and is AMAZING), but I'll just say that this new chapter was one I've been dreaming of for a long time, divinely appointed for this time in my career. I'm LOVING it!
In 2015 I'm attempting to read and post at least one book for each day of the calendar year. So here you will find my posts from the previous week of #bookaday #photoaday postings.
So there you have it...another week of reading is in the books!
Have a fantastic week among the pages!
I am still many shades of jealous about A Handful of Stars!, but suppose I can wait until May. Great books this week. The Word Collector and Death by Toilet Paper intrigue me most. I have Death by.. but the kids have been circulating it.ReplyDelete
I'm so glad to see The Book Maven's Haven blog again! I so look forward to your book recommendations.ReplyDelete
I love Cynthia Lord and am green with envy that you have gotten to read A Handful of Stars, while I have to wait til May! I've got Death by Toilet Paper on my to read list and am looking forward to it and a few others while I wait.ReplyDelete
I love Viva Frida! The pictures are so beautiful. I love that it's about emotions and the art is the last thing it shows. She was more than just her art.ReplyDelete
The Word Collector looks beautiful - I have to find that book. I love the way that you artistically show the book covers in your photographs. This is a Moose is hilarious - and was just so much fun to read.ReplyDelete
