Blogs are BUSY !

I have been reading a lot of blogs during my summer break. There are a lot of fun giveaways and linky parties. Here is one where bloggers share their favorite books:

Here are my responses:
Childhood Favorites: I know I loved reading Judy Bloom when I was in 5th grade! I also remember my school library had those " Little Miss ... " books that I would check out over and over again! LOL. I also loved this book:
I just loved the pictures that went with the story! It was one of my favs that I read over and over!

Classroom Favorites: I love The Rainbow Fish and A Fine, Fine School. I have used them in grade 1 and grade 4 at the beginning of the year. I loved reading aloud Louis' Sachar's Sideways Stories series and Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech. I also love Kevin Henkes books.

Professional Favorites: I always go back to The First Days of School by Wong.

Guilty Pleasure Favorites: The Shopaholic Series, Debbie Macomber, Mary Higgins Clark are a few of my favorites!


  1. I love Joan Walsh Anglund, too!


  2. Thanks for linking up! I had one of my reading groups read Sideways Stories this year - they LOVED it!

  3. I'd like to send you your "loot bag" for linking up, but I can't find your email. If you email me at jenrunde(at)yahoo(dot)com, I'll send it to you.

  4. I read a Debbie Macomber novel (Shop at Blossom St) first time ever a few weeks go - loved it! Decided to learn to KNIT that same day, watched a LOT of youtube videos and now am knitting a cap :) Hope you enjoy summer! I'm sending positive thoughts for you about next year/work!!!
