Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

Happy September!

Where I live in N.J., it's back-to-school week. I always get a little nostalgic this time of year. Especially when I read what fun other librarians are having, showing off new books, fancying up their spaces, tacking greetings on bulletin boards (Okay, true confession, I hated bulletin boards...).

But I can still spread the word to fellow librarians and to teachers who are still in the trenches, working their hearts out.

Click to check out  this great giveaway from Donna Gephart.
Olivia Bean, Trivia Queen= one funny book. I would so be booktalking and reading this one.

See what MR. SCHU read his kids on their first trips to his library: 

And last but not least- for all the preschoolers out there (and their moms and dads) headed off to school for the very first time, check this link for a few books recently reviewed in the New York Times.

 Have a great school year everybody- Read lots of books, make lots of friends, enjoy!
