In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
Fun reading time, as always with book treasures.

I am presently right in the middle of Chomp! by Carl Hiaasen – enjoying it quite a bit. I also look forward to reading Close to Famous by Joan Bauer soon… and many other titles teasing me over on the book shelf.
I treasure every minute that I’ve read with my son this month…
he’s been very open-minded when I come home with a stack of 20 new picture books.
I adored reading Here Come the Girl Scouts by Shana Corey. I’m looking forward to sharing this with everyone- my students, staff… love the format, illustrations, quotes, life story, just wonderful book from beginning to end.
I love the time period and look forward to partnering the book with Barbara Kerley’s book What to do about Alice? How Alice Roosevelt Broke the Rules, charmed the world, and drove her father Teddy Crazy.
Here’s a movie promotion for Here Come the Girl Scouts:
I went a little… cuckoo on reading all of Jarrett J. Krosoczka’s picture books this past month, what a fun run it was through his brilliant books! I’ll post more about this soon enough in an author appreciation post. Ollie is in another picture, don’t think I purposefully missed it! What a fun collection of books to read through with my son. I especially enjoyed when he was able to read me the books, so nice that Jarrett writes at a variety of different reading levels. I did already post once about how I’m a big fan of Punk Farm- it was my first “ever” Styling Librarian post: http://thestylinglibrarian.com/2012/01/02/starting-out/
This past week was Spring Break for me so I was on a mission to clear out some of the titles on my shelf… but I added more to the piles as well, so they don’t look any lighter, what’s new?
I enjoyed many books nonetheless.
I’m looking forward to chatting with my 5th graders tomorrow as I finally can answer “yes” to their constant checking if I finished reading Matched by Ally Condie, I did enjoy the book.
This is now National Poetry Month, so I MUST share my new favorite poetry treasure (I have around 80 favorites, might be writing about them this month!) My newest favorite is one that I have been anticipating reading for 3 years! I enjoyed listening to Gail Carson Levine reading aloud her poems during a professional conference and was so excited to finally have the book to enjoy: Forgive Me, I Meant to Do It– False Apology Poems by Gail Carson Levine this was a FABULOUS, HILARIOUS, WONDEROUS poetry read that I can’t wait to partner with numerous poetry books.
Here’s my new books read for the month of March 2012, love sharing with Animoto: *Note, I read over 30 books this past week, don’t really want to list them all… but anyone who wants to know what else I’ve enjoyed, click on my Goodreads on the side of this page- happy to make friends with more reading buddies. Also, I love having more friends sharing brilliant ideas on Twitter…
