- Mary @ Homegrown Learners writes about sharing two wonderful books with her children: the picture book Grandfather’s Journey and a juvenile biography about Thomas Edison. Don’t miss this post, especially if you’d like to know more about a wonderful curriculum that enables you to take learning from living books to the next level!
- Stephanie @ Simple Things writes about what is perhaps one of Eric Carle’s lesser-known books: Mr. Seahorse. Her little man gave this to his daddy for Father’s Day (with a little help from mama, of course). Can you say sweet?!?!
- Susan @ learning ALL the time reports that she and her children are enjoying The Rise and Fall of Mount Majestic, a book I raved about a few months ago. I look forward to reading more of Susan’s thoughts about reading aloud this terrific book!
- Amanda @ Nursery Rhymes and Fun Times highlights three books for babies, none of which I’ve seen before. This is one of my new bookish areas of interest, so I’m so glad Amanda is contributing to RAT!
- Rebecca @ The Joy of Literacy shares a post that just does my heart good! She shared One Crazy Summer as a read-aloud with some struggling middle grade readers, and she writes about the experience in this week’s RAT post. Don’t miss this one!
- Janet @ Across the Page highlights three books perfect for a study of wetlands. I really want to read these books with my girls! (Who am I kidding–I enjoy nature so much, I’d read them “to myself” just for fun! )
Have a great weekend, everyone!
