How I Spent My Summer Vacation – Mark Teague

When I was a sixth grade language arts teacher, How I Spent My Summer Vacation was one of my favorite books to use at the beginning of the school year with my students. This book does a terrific job of introducing young writers to the idea of employing imagination into their writing. Fun and enjoyable for young readers as well as big kids, How I Spent My Summer Vacation is a terrific resource for beginning of the school year fun.

First Day Jitters – Julie Danneberg

In honor of our daughter’s first day of third grade….

First Day Jitters is a favorite from my days in the classroom.  I love that the young lady who is suffering from first day jitters is a new teacher.  This reality does not come to light until about half way thru the book, and it always took students by surprise when I read it the first week of school. This is a wonderful book to use in the classroom to help children realize that everyone feels a little nervous the first day of school…Even the teachers!

Pip Bartlett’s Guide to Magical Creatures – Jackson Pearce and Maggie Stiefvater

This book features a little girl named Pip who can communicate with magical creatures which absolutely delighted our animal and fantasy loving daughter.  Engaging text coupled with detailed diagrams of a variety of mythical creatures made this book a quick, fun read.  This is the first book in a series, and book two is being eagerly awaited at our home!

Glory Days: Living Your Promised Land Life Now – Max Lucado

I am a big Max Lucado, and I am always thrilled to have the opportunity to review his newest release.  Glory Days provides a study of the book of Joshua.  He specifically tackles the disconnect between the promises found in the Bible related to the lives of Christians and the lives most Christians are living today.  This book is well written and provides much to think about for the reader.
