There are so many amazing wonderful beautiful books out there. So many favorite and new authors to explore. How can all of this lovely reading be managed?
I have come up with the perfect solution.
I used to do it with my second graders every single day at different times.
Drop everything you are doing and read!!!
With my second graders...the lively ones...it meant a mad dash to the shelves...until I took a minute off of their recess for the time that they spent fiddling and looking for a book.
Slowly they learned to keep their library books close by.
And they would actually look through our shelves and choose a book in the morning.
First mostly picture books.
Then books that I read to them.
And eventually chapter books.
And pretty soon everyone in my class became a book lover.
That was my gift to my students.
Now it's my gift to me.
I am dropping everything to read.
I can't stand not to.
Here are some new ones from NetGalley.
Shouldn't we all drop everything and just read?
