Happy December! Ready for a month filled with love, Christmas cheer, and excited children? There is nothing like an elementary classroom during the holiday season, so much excitement and anticipation!

Today I am sharing a Christmas read aloud favorite of mine...

The Golden Acorn Mentor Text Recommendation

I love the books Too Many Carrots and A Loud Winter's Nap, both written and illustrated by Katy Hudson. Her latest book might be my favorite... maybe because I am obsessed with squirrels!

The Someone New Book Recommendation PLUS New Student Tips

I visited Barnes and Noble the other day and found two new books that I fell in love with! I am going to share one today and one a little later this fall. 

The Someone New by Jill Twiss

is the perfect book for anytime of the year. Its message of friendship and overcoming your fears is perfect for all ears- young and old. The story is a sweet one and the illustrations are gorgeous (illustrated by EG Keller).
