This week is Children’s Book Week, and you know I love that!  I’m excited to partner up with some other amazing bloggers to get you “in the mood” for celebrating the week with us!

We’re big into reading both at my house and in my classroom.  When I’m reading on my own, I like science fiction and mystery books.  When I’m reading with kids, though, I have a much wider range!  Apparently, I have a lot of favorite kids’ books — one of my students last year even called me out on it when I was introducing a new book.  I said, “this is one of my favorite books” and he replied, “you sure do have a lot of favorite books, Ms. Mary Catherine!”  I can’t say that he’s wrong!

Right now, my favorite books for my preschool kiddos pertain to camping, flowers, and kindergarten . . .




Engineer has a variety of favorite books, as well.  Honestly, he’s spoiled by my giant collection of children’s books (along with all of the books he calls his own).  Right now, he’s really into books about Spider-Man and Transformers, with a few chapter books thrown in there.  He also has some picture books he comes back to again and again!

    It’s no secret that reading increases your vocabulary and improves your spelling, but did you know that reading increases your vocabulary more than talking or direct teaching? Reading forces us to look at words that we might not have seen or heard recently at the pub. In fact, language in children’s books are likely to be more sophisticated than your average conversation.
