Kids’ Books to Remember and Some Links For Your Week

January 30, 2017

kids' books to remember

I’ve had a wonderful week, even though the Chicago area weather insists upon being gray and gloomy! I spent time with both of my sisters, two of my nieces and some good friends, and finally finished my week by celebrating our son’s birthday. What could be better than that? As a result, I haven’t spent as much time at the library or reading articles on the internet. However, I have lots to share with you today, especially some kids’ books to remember!

More about Susan

Hi! I'm Susan, a wife, a mom and a recently retired elementary school librarian with 22 years of experience. One of my greatest joys is to connect kids with a perfect book, which then leads them to a lifelong love of learning. Through my blog, I'm hoping to reach parents, their children and teachers to help them find those special books. I’m also hoping to offer some tips and techniques to use with your children as you read aloud.


I appreciate your comments!
