Time to share some great literacy resources and children’s books linked up to last week’s The Children’s Bookshelf. There were many more, so if you didn’t get a chance, now’s the time to catch up. Now that I’m creating these awesome MeMe Tales clickable collages, you shall be entertained and amused to see how many titles I can come up with that communicate “literacy tips and kids’ books.” It reminds me of when I lived in a certain California city and watched the weather reporter invent a new way of saying “sunny and 75 degrees” each day of the week.
Check out these posts (you can also click directly from the collage, above):
- Need some read aloud inspiration? Creekside Learning has 10 ideas. As a theater geek I’m particularly fond of one of them. Can you figure out which one?
- I might have avoided the early chapter book series, Kylie Jean based on its girly-girl covers and premise that the heroine wants to be a beauty queen, but Youth Literature Reviews makes a convincing argument to read them.
- The Book Chook introduces us to Monsieur Albert Rides to Glory.
- Sunlit Pages thoroughly examines three Elephant & Piggie books.
- You’ll find an excellent resource at The Family Bookshelf: the Literacy Lalapalooza newsletter.
- The Story Snug explains why reading The Princess and the Peas will get your kid to eat veggies.
- KC Edventures shares resources for reading and learning from Dr. Seuss.
- Bookworm Mama helps out parents with simple ways to help your child understand what they read.
- What kid doesn’t love a book about poop? The Picture Book Review tells us about Poopendous!
Don’t forget to join The Children’s Bookshelf hosts in the Great Books for Kids community on Google+. I know you will enjoy the bookish chats we have over there.
I can’t wait to see what you’ll link up this week and I look forward to featuring new posts for you next week!
