Too Darn Cute


A teacher at heart, I love books.  I especially love children's literature.  I find that, in the back of my mind, I am always thinking about how I might use a story in a classroom.  Even though I am not currently teaching, I see opportunities to teach all around me.  And though I could probably read ONLY children's books for the rest of my life, I occasionally mix it up with something else.  However, with a new babe at home, my free time seems to have been shortened and chopped up into short snippets, alternating between cleaning, cooking, bathing, or an occasional nap.  However, I am trying to make more time for reading.  My Goodreads list is growing way faster than I can shorten it so I have some serious work to do.  Here are some recent ones I have read and some of my ideas on how to use them to teach.
