|whimsical story w/ charming illustrations and curvy text.|
I realized that I have been blogging for nearly five months and have yet to write about BOOKS I LOVE.
Sure, I have posted stories written by some of my students. This post is to offer ideas from the educator side for read-alouds or enjoying books at home with your children.
I dedicate this blog post to my father who always - ALWAYS - had a book with him.
1. Bunches and Bunches of Bunnies.

2. The Bunny Who Found Easter.

3. Happy Easter, Davy.
